Wrap a Gift For a Friend!


Add statement pops of color and spark to your holiday gifts this year with our DIY packaging class! These simple yet unique projects make for beautiful, cost-effective and practical solutions during the holiday rush. In this class, we'll be focusing on minimalist designs by repurposing common materials to create eye-catching packaging ensembles. The video lecture will cover five decorative packaging styles, including: Paper Poms + Bows, Gold Leaf Patterns, Mini Garland Wraps, Fabric Tape Accents, and Decorative Fringe Layering. The class includes printable holiday freebies, too!
