As you may know, I have been teaching workshops as part of my 'micro-business' (The Gifted Blog and its related endeavors). Here are some highlights from the June Gift Toppers Workshop!
I had a lovely time. We swapped stories of how our families wrap gifts. We marveled that one student's sister (a former professional) wraps her gifts with the seam at the edge of the box, making the gift wrap appear seamless. We were also very honored to have two self-professed "not crafty" women in the mix, who - as you can see - did wonderfully!
It's a joy to pass on the satisfaction of making something with your own two hands. One student went home and made a Mylar wrapper ribbon for her daughter's hair. She attached it to a ponytail holder and her little girl loves it. Sweet! Whether you've taken a workshop or not, I hope you give an idea on The Gifted Blog a try. There's nothing like doing it yourself!
