Celebration Gift Box
Sweet Paprika co-owners Debbie and Elizabeth both have birthdays in November, and this year to celebrate we put together some very special "celebration boxes" that include yarn and a variety of goodies we would love to give to (and receive from!) each other as a birthday gift.
About our Gift Boxes
Our first step in creating these gift boxes was to dye some fresh new yarn colours. Debbie developed a new Crescendo gradient set for the occasion using our favourite colours (teal, blue and purple) plus a new pale grey Molto Crescendo contrast colour. When the yarn was dyed, Elizabeth used it to design a new pattern for a gorgeous knitted wrap featuring a surface weaving technique and knotted fringe. She also sewed a limited number of fully lined project bags for the "deluxe" boxes.
Once the yarn and pattern were complete, we packaged them up with some little extra gifts and goodies from a few of our favourite woman-owned Canadian small businesses.
All the gift boxes are nicely packaged in a sturdy kraft box, perfect for gifting to yourself or a knitting friend. If you prefer to keep things simple and don't want all the extras, the "yarn + pattern only" box is for you. We hope you love these gift boxes as much as we do!
