the various and sundry creations of sylvus tarn
Antique style
last in a series of matte brown giftwrap

This one's a personal fave, probably because of that sour green curling ribbon, which contrasts nicely with the vintage printed red ribbon—all tied together (heh) by the paper, which has a very nice motif of old fashion (50s?) style ornament designs; the non-trad xmas colors—lime, turquoise and tan—also give the paper a vintage feel.

Plus, I admit that I kind of like the fancy background—we have an older house, and the wooden, muntined window made a nice backdrop: I'm guessing this shot was probably from necessity: probably too wet/cold/unpleasant to shoot outside, so I had to come up with something else.
