Description

Whether it’s a simple box, a tube or an awkwardly shaped tin, shows you how to achieve wrapping perfection with simple step-by-step instructions, tips and tricks, so that you can learn what really works for impact and elegance. In this digital age, anything tangible somehow feels more significant or appreciated, and nowhere is that more evident than in the world of paper and giftwrapping. Wherever you look, blogs or magazines offer ideas for enhancing a humble gift by embellishing it with vintage or reused materials. In this gorgeous book, ‘Gift Wrap Guru’ Jane Means, who wraps for the stars, royalty and high-end companies, takes it to a new, more luxurious level. Offering her signature style and personal take on wrapping any present so that it is transformed into a gloriously gorgeous gift, Jane shows you her ‘tricks’ on how to upcycle vintage treasures and reuse unusual wrapping papers, such as sheet music and old maps, to the best effect, as well as how to choose the perfect style for the gift’s recipient.
