PUTTING IT TOGETHER This wrap combination is like vintage post office meets Parisian child, and every element is a treasure on its own. The Parcel Post label and Special Delivery ribbon — your “post office” elements — are both vintage, as is the spirograph-patterned gift wrap (remember making spirographs as a kid?). The red and navy cotton-linen ribbons are from France, and would look lovely wound around the box several times, along with the Special Delivery ribbon. The paper rabbit puppet — a whimsical gift topper — is by designer Furze Chan of Hong Kong. The colour palette: so French, oui?
