See, pretty exciting. Below, S. is giving her grocery bag pom-pom a trim.
For the more fashion-forward, the gift-toppers double as holiday brooches. (Teasing.) Note the fancy ribbons on the left she made from a ramen package! (This time I'm serious.)
A big THANK YOU to my first gift wrapping pupils. They had great attitudes and made the workshop experience very fun.
My cousin asked if I would be up for teaching a private class to her and her friends. I think this would be a blast! If you are interested in arranging a workshop for yourself and a group of friends (or your book group, Bible study, family, etc!), please contact me at giftedmailbox[at]gmail][dot]com. I would be happy to discuss details with you.
- Tutorial Tryout: Grocery Bag Pom-Pom. With the help of a fabulous tutorial from Creature Comforts, my first try at making a pom-pom from a produce bag.
- Wrap Story: Playing With Proportion. Using a big tissue paper blossom was the right decision for this wedding gift.
- Tutorial Tryout: Ramen Wrapper Ribbon. The details on the shiny ribbons we made in the workshop, including the idea's tightwad roots.
