Wrapped With Style: Simple, Creative Ideas for Imaginative Gift Wrapping

Much of the fun of wrapping stylish gifts is sorting through and selecting the raw materials—paper or fabric, bag or box, ribbon, yarn, twine, or any special embellishments. The variety of materials available is amazing and inspiring. This creative book includes projects using a wide selection of papers (both hand-painted and commercially available), ribbons, fresh flowers, rubber stamping, stickers, quilling, and other special adornments. We have gathered beautiful, festive wrapping ideas from individual paper crafters and gift wrappers across the country. A gift is all the more delightful when contained in a thoughtful, creative package—and this book captures that concept perfectly. Materials range from simple bags and boxes to elegant packages. The personal touch of a specially-wrapped gift lets the recipient feel the joy and pleasure you had creating it. Start playing with paper. Anything can happen. Stretch your imagination and creativity. Create something from your heart. And have fun!
