04 Nov 2011 SCRAP Workshop: SCRAP Wrap is Back!
Megumi and Monica are back by popular demand to share more unique gift-wrapping techniques! They have a treasure trove of ideas for gift-wrapping inspired by SCRAP materials that will come in handy for any gift giving occasion. They will demonstrate some new techniques and tips and of course go over last year’s favorites. Sign up early and plan to bring a few gifts to the workshop. Utilize what you learn in the workshop and get a head start on your holiday wrapping. Using bottle caps, twine, buttons, scraps of fabric and much more participants will create elegant and exciting designs to present their packages and gifts. You will never look at gift-wrapping the same way again!
