Pretty Packages
Pretty Packages: 45 Creative Gift-Wrapping Projects | Sally J Shim
34 posts
With just a few simple steps, blogger Sally J Shim shows readers how to turn an ordinary package into a customized present as special as the gift within. From a stitched garland topper and watercolor 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 as well as Etsy shop owners to make every element of their package special.

@Gissy I hope you and your family are still safe. I am praying for everyone in PR that is affected by the quakes. I will be sending your package out tomorrow right after I get out of work. @Chrissyreadit #Readinthenewyear

Gissy @Endowarrior21 Thank you for asking! We are ok and the south part of the island is receiving services. It is hard for them but I know we will recover soon from this situation. Don't worry for the package🤗 3y

Thanks so much for this wonderful stuff Becky! A book from my list, a book not from my list from my favorite sub-genre, gummy candy, and HP page clips that I don't have. I love all the things!

And thanks to @Avanders for setting up this swap!
