In the December issue of Canadian Living, the talented Corinna vanGerwen used many items from our store to create gorgeous packages from a plain kraft box.  We are lucky enough to be hosting two workshops in our upcoming holiday schedule taught by Corinna.  Stay tuned – you won’t be disappointed!

    Thanks for the shout-out, and for your help with the story!

    Faith, Laura, sometimes I too feel that a paper can be too precious to use – but then you end up with a whole stack of unused paper sitting in a drawer that no one gets to enjoy.

    All the papers I used in the story cost about the same as a regular sheet of gift wrap, so don’t require any crazy high budget. Even the chiyo – the amount I used allows you to wrap 4-6 gifts from one sheet (or more, depending on the size of the boxes), again taking the cost down to be on par with standard wrapping paper.

    When you see the look on someone’s face when they receive a beautifully wrapped gift – that’s what makes it worth it. They feel appreciated that you put that much care and thought into something as “disposable” as the wrapping. (And they usually save the wrapping, allowing them to use and enjoy the paper again later.)

    I’m a firm believer in making everything in life beautiful — even the little things — because that’s what makes life enjoyable.

    I agree with Faith – my “Paper Place” paper is too precious to be used for wrapping! But it does look lovely. Perhaps if I had unlimited income… Anyways, great feature & I love how they used my “cheesy Christmas gold” glitter paper. :)

    What lovely wrapping… too bad I feel wasteful wrapping presents so beautifully. I prefer to use my chiyogami in artworks instead.
