the various and sundry creations of sylvus tarn
Black Snowflakes
accent silver and red

Fran is fond of red, black and silver, and appreciates a bit of goth, so I was able to do this rather Gorey-ish style decoration. Despite the English text, the mylar wrapping is from Japan.

red and silver mylar giftwrap, accented with black and silver snowflakes; pewter wire edged ribbon, silver ribbons, red petersham ribbon; assembled with tape and hot glue. Sony ILCE-7C, 90mm sony macro; f/2.8, 1/500s, ISO 100, EV 0, WB cloudy, 20Dec2022:10:47. Cropped and rotated.

As I've mentioned in the past, I got a big bag of these flocked snowflake ornaments for 50 cents at the local thrift store; the mylar is scavenged from a prior gift (as are the other ribbons).

Cropped, because I clipped the lower right edge of the image, which I note is also showing the white box I used to prop the gift at an angle. Definitely one of my sloppier styling jobs.
