"Ideal both for those who haven't a clue how to wrap a present and for those who are keen to try something a little different." — reviewsrevues
Colorful papers, ribbons, and bows create a magical atmosphere, setting the scene for a memorable day.

About the Author:

UK-based craft author Caroline Birkett is the author of Hand Knits for the Home, and her knitting patterns have appeared in Knitting Magazine.

From Booklist:

Gift wrapping, according to former textile designer Birkett, is a feat to be accomplished and then admired. Her instructions include those both nimble and not and range from covering a basic box to fashioning crackers for all occasions. There is something for everyone in these 150-plus different projects. Each runs about a page or two with minimal directions, large color photographs, and occasional tips on best/alternate methods. Some of the more unusual ideas: a rose-embellished bow, an origami box, a paper fan bow, and woven paper baskets, among others. At the end are the basics: materials, tools, and the five fundamental techniques (measuring, transferring, scoring, folding, and cutting). This handy how-to will leave gift givers rapt with pleasure.
