Hosting Matters

We want to pause for a second and give a huge round of thanks to our web host Hosting Matters.

We’ve been with Hosting Matters for a dozen years now. Seriously. We switched hosts four times in 2001 – but once we landed with HM, we haven’t switched since. A celebration / event of this magnitude eats up an incredible amount of bandwidth and puts a huge load on the server. But HM keeps paperieboutique.com up and running, provides the bandwidth for all of the great photos / content / free downloads on the site, and their staff works around the clock – even on weekends and holidays – making sure you can always get your Paperie on!

We’ve had amazing technical support with several of our other high-traffic, high-profile sites over the years as well.

If you need a new host, I highly recommend checking into them – they even have a special plan just for our readers here at Paperie Boutique!

Thanks to Annette and the HM crew!

button stuck like glue

Here’s another bow tutorial – also designed to survive the pack’n’ship process!

You will need to have the following items on hand:

1.   Wide ribbon (1½” or wider)
2.   Thin ribbon (½” or wider – light wiring looks best)
3.   Accent ribbon (½” or wider – optional)
4.   Glue gun
5.   Xyron 150 “X” Create-a-Sticker Machine
6.   Jolee’s Boutique Santa Hats (optional)
7.   Jingle bells (optional)
8.   Christmas buttons (optional)
9.   Holiday floral picks
10. HB Photo Packaging 5×7″ boxes (wedding white & kraft)


holiday giftwrap presentation photography

First, take your widest ribbon and cut at 14″ long for a 5×7 (½” wide) box. Wrap around the box and hot glue the ends together. (I insert a postcard under the ribbon before gluing to make sure the box is not damaged.

holiday giftwrap photography

Next, take the thinner ribbon and also cut a 14″ piece. Run the ribbon, top side facing up, through the Xyron “X” Create-a-Sticker. (The Xyron machine allows you to take any embellishments – ribbon, paper, chipboard, etc. – up to 1½” wide and turn them into “stickers”.)

Once you have run the entire length of ribbon through the Xyron, tear off paper / ribbon / plastic covering from the machine. Before removing the plastic covering, press down on the entire length of ribbon to make sure the adhesive “sticks” to the back of the ribbon. Then carefully peel off the plastic covering. Your ribbon will be adhered to the “sticker paper” and is ready to be removed. Essentially you have just created “ribbon tape”.

holiday giftwrap photography

Determine the center of your ribbon tape and turn the photo box over, starting on the back. Center the ribbon tape from top-to-bottom and place on top of the wider ribbon, slowly and carefully wrapping it around the box. Go slow and keep it even! Turn the photo box back over and seal ends together on the top / center.

holiday giftwrap photography

Now it’s time to start on the bow! Take your thinner ribbon and cut three additional strips – one 8″ long, one 6″ long, and one 4″ long. If using a separate accent ribbon as shown, cut that length 2½” long. You can also opt to make the entire bow with the same ribbon, and you would cut a fourth strip 2½” long.

Use your hot glue gun to join the ends of each individual ribbon strip, making a “ring”. Flatten the ribbon-rings (in the 8″, 6″, and 4″ sizes), seam side down, and put one small dot of hot glue in the inside-center of the ring and press together – essentially forming a “figure 8”.

holiday giftwrap packages photography

Take the 8″ strip (now in a flat-8 shape) and put a dot of hot glue on the top center. Center the 6″ strip (now in a flat-8 shape) and press together. Put a dot of hot glue on the top center. Then center the 4″ strip (now in a flat-8 shape) and press together. Put a dot of hot glue on the top center. You will now press the smallest 2½” ribbon loop on the top-center of the bow.

I chose to hot glue a jingle bell in the center of the top loop on the bow (as shown). You could also use buttons, peppermints, mini candy canes, or scrapbooking embellishments.

Finally run a 2″ line of hot glue along the thin ribbon on the top center of your photo box. Center your bow and press. Remove the postcard once the glue has dried. If using wired ribbon, you can now “fluff” the loops on the bow. Voilà!

holiday giftwrap photography

For this box, I cut the end off of a Jolee’s Boutique Santa Hat, making it into a “planter”. Before I hot glued the bow on, I hot glued a red berry floral pick underneath. I put a couple of pieces of craft-moss in the “planter” with the red berry “tree” attached inside the hat-planter (under the moss) – carefully using hot glue to adhere all of the pieces.

holiday giftwrapping photography presentation

For this box, I hot glued a Christmas button in the bottom right corner, and then attached a Jolee’s Boutique Santa Hat on top. My business name is “Buttons and Bows Photography” so this incorporates both elements of that name.

Check out Shelly’s Buttons and More for more package-decoration inspiration! A few of my favorite items are the gingerbread men, holly buttons, snowflakes, and Christmas lights.

button things are going to start
     happening to me now

A few weeks ago I Tweeted about a very special secret project I was invited to be a part of, and how it was finally underway. Now I can give you a little peek into the end-results! There is a lot more on the way, but for now, a teaser if you will…..

HB Photo Logo

HB Photo Packaging recently launched a packaging design-it-yourself line called “Print Your Own“. They invited me to be a part of a packaging design test project, and I truly believe (*crossing fingers”) it’s going to take off like wildfire as the plans for it continue to develop.

I mean, look at the photos – and the quality – below! How can it not?

Buttons and Bows Photography - Print Your Own

Buttons and Bows Photography - Print Your Own

The images shown above are of my “Classic Stripes & Solids Collection” — box sizes shown are 11×14, 8×10, and 5×7. The Buttons and Bows Photography logos and button icons on the bottom-right of the boxes are NOT stickers. They are actually printed on the boxes!

Buttons and Bows Photography - Print Your Own

Buttons and Bows Photography - Print Your Own

These next two photos are of the custom CD / DVD cases in the “Classic Stripes & Solids Collection”. I cannot describe how fantastic these look in person! My clients are going to flip!

Buttons and Bows Photography - Print Your Own

Buttons and Bows Photography - Print Your Own

These next two photos are of the “Dots and Stripes Collection”. I think these will be great for newborn photography packaging. I can go from ‘classic’ to ‘whimsical’ whenever the mood strikes.

To see larger images of the “Classic Stripes & Solids Collection” and the “Dots and Stripes Collection” head on over to Flickr…

Print Your Own” is now offering a more economical option as well — you can still design custom box tops, but use their regular line of stock box colors instead on the bottom.

You also might remember that a few weeks back HB asked Paperie readers to suggest new colors for their Boutique Color Line.

I’m excited to announce that four five new colors have been added to the lineup – Razzle Berry, Orange Fiz, Lemon Drop, Lime Green, and Titanium. You can also finally purchase the Aqua / Aqua combo! (Check out the Boutique Color Line for more sizes and colors.) And if you don’t see the size of box you want with the new colors, hang tight — more are on the way!

Plans are in the works for coupons and packaging-set giveaways for Paperie readers from HB, so stay tuned!

And don’t forget, just a few more hours to win a $200 gift certificate from Sassy Designs!

Have a great weekend —

button the monster mash(up)

Normally I don’t post on the weekends because I’m shooting, but this past week has been anything but normal. And since I finally have a weekend off and a mountain of stuff to catch up on post-flu, today is a Paperie Mashup of photos, guest posts, and fabulous prizes. (Make sure you read ’til the end for the chance to win a little summin’-summin’!)

After 2½ months of non-stop, back-to-back shooting (including 6 babies born 4-6 weeks ahead of schedule), I finally have a few weekends free thanks to the early births to try and catch up on life (and work, and more work, and even more work) again. I’m surprised some of my clients haven’t started chasing me through town with pitchforks and torches. But before I could unclutter my to-do list, I had to get some sense of order back in my office. And I finally got the 33-year old portrait of me and my mom restored and up on the wall, so for the first time, the room looks as complete as I always envisioned it in my mind.

B and B office

You can see more of my office / wrapping station over at Flickr in the post and in the comments.

B and B office

This portrait of me and my mom (including the frame) hung above the wrapping station in my grandmother’s (maternity / infant / toddler / child) clothing store from the 70s to the late 80s. Now it has been restored and hangs above mine.

B and B office

My red and Tiffany suitcases are no longer sold, but try Land of Nod for ones very similar.

B and B office

A quick peek at my closet storage system. I also have 1-car of our 3-car garage. Will work for props!

B and B office

And if you didn’t get quite enough office pics from me, here’s one more from Heather of Stylized Portraiture in Athens, GA.

stylized portraiture

“In our studio we have a sliding door with about 2-inches of wall clearance. It hides the door when we’re gone or during appointments and slides open when we’re open to the public. We needed a wall to show various print sizes and decided to put it behind that door. With only 2 inches of clearance, we couldn’t use frames. Originally, we were going to use vinyl stickers that looked like frames, but the least expensive place that we found ended up costing almost $300 for all of them – an amount we just weren’t prepared to spend. So, we bought designer thumbtacks at Hobby Lobby and used those instead! They’re paper over wood, but designer pushpins come in all kinds of materials, even glass! Just check on Etsy or your local stores.”

Recently Paperie had a Design Aglow “Studio Look Book” giveaway sponsored by one of our readers Tosha Francis of The Captured Life Photography in Washington D.C.

Last fall I featured an amazing guest post by Heather James Photography. In it she shared her accordion price guide. She’s now designed that guide for you to use as well, and provided an amazing discount to Paperie readers. I’ll let Heather do the talking from here…

the brand project

Last summer I found myself with a dilemma: I had an inquiry from someone who didn’t have internet. I found myself scrambling as I had built my business on an eco-friendly format and had nothing to send the potential client. I needed something that showcased my best photography, my pricing and most of all my passion for my work. I also needed a product that wouldn’t break the bank and was easily reproduced in small quantities. And so, the accordion price guide was born!

the brand project

I love this piece and have had so many compliments and inquiries on what’s exactly inside that I’ve decided to release it as my first template in my shop for my new project, Brand by Heather James. This 10- panel accordion offers places for you to showcase images, provide information about you as an artist and your sessions, as well as a large section dedicated to pricing, packages and products. The photoshop template is both a fully editable and multi-layer and includes sample text direct from Heather James Photography’s guide that we currently use to help you get started.

the brand project

I love this product so much that I want you all to have it as a part of your business brand. That’s why from now through March 31, 2010, take $10 off the purchase price of the template with offer code pbmarch2010. Be sure to visit our design site at thebrandproject.com and our shop at thebrandproject.com/shop for more details on this template and all of our other design offerings!

Thank you so much for sharing these, Heather! They look fantastic!
