Here's another gift in the brown/red/tan reindeer paper series: which I think makes obvious, the paper typically drives the decorations. In this case I've added another colour, a sort of pine green to balance the red, creating a triad of brown (tan is a tint, i.e. brown mixed with a lot of white), green and red, with touches of bright white to lend the design some snap.
giftwrap 25dec2017, lumix LX100. f1.7, iso 1250(!) paper, velvet, satin, fabric, and curling ribbon, raffia, miniature santa, white plastic snowflake & bead garlanding, silk evergreen branch
I quite like the way the white dots make a subtle pattern, softening the bright brown.
