With just a few simple steps, blogger Sally J Shim shows readers how to turn an ordinary package into a customised present as special as the gift within. From a stitched garland topper and watercolour wrapping paper to a confetti gift tag, each of the 45 creative and achievable projects offers a unique twist on gift wrapping. Plus, each project has multiple variations, leading to endless possibilities for prettying up packages. Including techniques for wrapping oddly shaped packages, ideas for creating reusable packaging (a bonus gift for the recipient!) and projects that require only basic materials, Pretty Packages will inspire gift givers to make every element of their package special.
