botanical collection for ompak


Valerie Delsman took photo's of my new Botanical Collection for Ompak gift wrap company! The lovely lady carrying the pile of presents (in the freezing cold on her Saturday morning) is Valeries always supporting sister Claire.

When and how did I design it?
It was again a feast to design together with Ompak. Owner Dorothé and I don't need so many words anymore, we understand each other quite easily! 
The only thing that was a bit frustrating was that the designing had to take place in winter, which for me is the busiest time of the year. There was always a full inbox, a full head, a full to-do-list and lots of orders to process! The best way for me to design is complete focus, an empty agenda for a couple of days (or weeks) and an empty mind. For next time I will have to hire someone for the daily concerns!

What is behind the designs?
The graphic line pattern called Glass House is an ode to the Crystal Palace (a huge 'glass house') that stood in Hyde Park, London and was destroyed in 1936.

The black and white Fern print is actually inspired by fern plants, but the fun thing is that on the last trade fair a lot of people told me: Oh, Jurianne, I love your Feather print the best! Feathers, Ferns, it's ok with me, as long as you like it ;-)

I designed new gift tags as well: The set is called Fields of Joy, Dorothé named it after the song by Lenny Kravitz. It contains 10 precut butterflies and 10 precut flowers. If you fold the leaves towards each other the flowers get a 3d shape. Same with the butterfly wings, squeeze them towards each other and it will look as if the butterfly will fly away. You can use Fields of Joy for decorating your gifts, to make a Spring garland, or to stick to your walls...

There's still one item to come: Butterfly Bags. Small white paper gift bags with a large black/white striped butterfly on it. Can't wait to have them, I think they are going to be so cute!

And some winter-designs, like Wallpaper and Blackboard Berries have been given a nice new spring colour. They fit beautifully in the Botanical theme now...

Where to buy?
Are you a retailer in need for a large roll of nice botanical wrapping paper or for a pile of gift tags to use for wrapping Spring gifts in your shop? Or would you like to sell sets of Fields of Joy and smaller rolls of wrapping paper in your shop to consumers?  Please contact Ompak, they are a wholesaler and they will be happy to help all retailers!

Are you a consumer in NL looking for one or two gift tag sets or a few small wrapping paper rolls? Vlinders in je buik sells most of the collection!
