Gift-wrapping has become big business, as busy people flock to the gift-wrapping departments of their favourite shops, and to high-end personal gift wrappers. Gift givers are frequently spending as much or more on wrapping as on the gift itself. For anyone who pays attention to the details and insists upon the finishing touch that a creatively wrapped gift provides, this book is for you. It teaches, through step-by-step projects, how to wrap commonly shaped gifts beautifully and affordably. Design tips and resources for materials and designing home gift centres help take anyone's skill to the next level. Included in the book are step-by-step projects that are easily duplicated; instructions for folding paper and making bows; interesting ideas for bow making and sources of papers and lots of ideas that are appropriate for various gifting occasions. Above all, the ideas are presented through beautiful photographs of completed gift-wrapped packages, step-by-step illustrations, and how-to copy and resources.
