Sadly, during this super busy silly season we simply do not have the time to offer a gift wrapping service… Happily, we do have plenty of gorgeous packaging options that you can purchase for your special handmade goodies. Find plenty of creative solutions at Handmade Shop to make the outside of your gift just as exciting as what’s inside!
If you are a clever creative, and have some spare time [lucky you!] Here’s an interesting step-by-step guide on how to wrap – with style – using cloth! “Taking a cue from the Japanese art of furoshiki. Swap paper for fabric, and get craftastic with material off-cuts, old scarves, vintage hankies, pretty kitchen towels or even old shirts or tees snipped up. In this how-to animation, fabric artist Penelope Kokinelis of Uptightso shows you how to wrap with style using cloth”
