Gift-wrap, like gansta rap, is a highly complex form of self-expression that is often underappreciated and mercilessly torn apart by grandmothers anxiously expecting Lawrence Welk Plays "I Love You Truly" and Other Songs of Love. Give decorative paper its due with today's Groupon: for $15, you get $30 worth of gift-wrapping materials, stationery, office and school supplies, classes, and more at Paper Twist, located in the Specialty Shops on the Park. This Groupon cannot be used toward online purchases.
Conceptualized by longtime pals and business partners Sasha Harbrecht and Laura Smith, Paper Twist prides itself on being a one-stop fiber shop for customers that crave fashion as well as function. Start preparing for the holidays without overcooking a turkey by stocking up on stylish swatches of gift wrap covered in colorful gumdrops ($3.50 for 20"x30"), or perpetuate the summer's cheer by wallpapering the insides of your reading glasses with a whimsical and reversible wrap such as You are My Sunshine ($4.50 for 24"x36"), which displays the birthday- song lyrics on one side and brightly colored suns on the other. Note cards come in a variety of styles, including a delicious 30% recycled- paper card that presents a pink-frosted cupcake on a pale-yellow background ($16.95 for a box of 12 cards). If you want to spruce up your own workspace, browse Paper Twist's stock of stylish calendars, notebooks, and organizational tools.
For help mastering Paper Twist's myriad of materials, use this Groupon toward a fun and informative class, such as Gift Wrapping 101 ($20), in which students learn the artful techniques required to wrap nearly anything, from simple sweater boxes to cubist-style 18-sided busts of Abraham Lincoln. Also on the calendar is a Holiday Bows class ($25), during which instructors demonstrate how to add knotted flair to winter wreaths, mantles, treetops, and top-hat-shunning snowwomen. Customers can purchase two Groupons to be used toward a single class or during a single visit to the store.
