Finding a wrapping paper that suits your taste can be a huge pain, as most of them tend to prefer adult contemporary or, worse, acid jazz. For present packaging that would be totally down to listen to Black Star, check out Wolf in Sheep's Wrapping.
Just launched, WiSW's a local, one-woman artisan wrapping paper company whose awesomely hodgepodge-y designs all originate as actual collages (which're then scanned and pressed on HQ 30lb matte paper) all run by a chick who makes her living as a singer-songwriter, thus effectively ruling out Meredith Brooks. The best stuff includes:
A messy-by-design number called "Manbiotic" featuring an old TV repping a model, a crap-ton of hammers, and what appears to be a fire extinguisher with the phrase "no guts, no glory", though, to be fair, you could say the same thing about Denzel Washington.
Surprisingly not the title of an E! True Hollywood Story about the cast of Sliders, "Time Stars" includes a rooster statue, fractal-ish designs, giant bird eggs connected by a fishing pole-type contraption to a chick who looks like she's wearing a bunch of grapes, and a naked woman with a dog face.
A stark, retroish design w/ a suited gentleman peering down at some unseen item of interest, a grafitti'd brick wall, and a disco ball, titled "Black Loves White", which also gives away the original plot of Reservoir Dogs when it was just an edgy, same-sex rom-com.
