I was asked to design a project to celebrate the birthday of William Morris the 19th century designer/writer who urged a return to handmade craftsmanship amidst a world rushing toward industrial manufacturing. His textile and surface designs heavily featured floral and nature inspired motifs, so with that in mind I gathered some leaves and flowers and set off to print my own paper.
Printing your own Floral Wrapping Paper is super quick to do, and with the magic of video I’ll even talk you through it!
