JUST SAYING HELLO

hi everyone. happy hump day. i’m going to pop-up magazine tonight at the ace hotel and looking forward to it. i’ve heard great things! have you been? i also went on a tinder lunch date today. it’s so interesting meeting new people, hearing their stories, watching how different everyone is. who knows what will come out of this new dating thing, but i must say, it’s kinda fun!

i hope the rest of your week involves giant cinnamon rolls and red lipstick…xo bri

MEGHAN TRAINOR VIDEO PROJECT

last week was such a blur! i was brought on to the meghan trainor “lips are movin” video to help with the set designs and art direction of the video. honestly, this was one of those projects that i wasn’t sure i was ready for. it was a huge production, i was excited about it, but also nervous! after some thought, i decided to just go for it and make it work. you can see a bunch of behind the scenes and the actual music video after the jump!

i met with director philip andelman & production designer maxwell orgell (both these guys have worked on such amazing projects!) and got a feel for the concept of the video. from there, i came up with a bunch of mood boards and ideas for the sets. we wanted to keep it very colorful, playful and fun (luckily, right up my alley) then, maxwell and his team made some of those ideas become a reality. it was really great collaborating with them!

3 AWESOME WRAP IDEAS!

’tis the season for gift giving (and gift wrapping!). today we’re going to learn how to perfectly wrap a gift like the pros. if you’ve ever watched one of those in-store gift wrappers you know that they take it to the next level with their perfection (which i always appreciate). we’re also going to throw in a couple of quick and easy ways to mix up your standard wrapping job that will be sure to make an impact.

what you’ll need: 

•Scotch® Doubled Sided Tape
• scissors
• wrapping paper of choice
• printable gems (you can download for free, here)
• metallic or colored tape
* 1″ hole punch

option #1: we started with the most beautiful hand painted wrapping papers by birch & goldberry. we couldn’t pick just one favorite so we incorporated multiple by adding 3D gems on the top in contrasting papers. once you print the gems, place your wrapping paper on top of the pattern and cut out the shape. fold along the outlined edges and secure with Scotch® Double Sided Tape.

option #2: use your 1″ hole punch to create cut outs in a piece of your wrapping paper and then place directly over an already wrapped gift.

option #3: we love the idea of adding metallic tape around the outside edges of your box. we used Scotch® Brand silver tape which also comes in a ton of other colors to match your own papers.

receiving a beautiful wrapped gift is such a treat. i’ve been given some gifts that were so stunning i don’t even want to unwrap them.
