Winter flower frames and gift wrapping

This Christmas I chose to amplify my pressed flower production line with longer-lasting presents. Rather than leaving the flowers and foliage to adorn the outside of my wrapping, I placed them in the centre of my Christmas presents. I bought these simple glass hanging frames and filled them with delicate stems from Columbia Road flower market.

The frames allow you to preserve flowers and foliage but the contents can be swapped for something more seasonal when spring comes around. Intricate leaves come in such wonderful shapes and they are also the quickest and easiest to press.

Oliver Bonas have a selection of gold and rose gold frames ranging from 2 x 2″ and 11 x 14″. The smallest would make beautiful flower petal gift tags or christmas tree decorations.

If you’re still into authentic, foraged gift wrap- take a look at Isabella Thorsden’s natural beauties; the cinnamon sticks are a sweet little extra. Local Milk also has some minimalistic gift wrap inspiration.
