Japanese Style Gift Wrapping Workshop. Toronto Botanical Garden. Participants packages.


Japanese Style Gift Wrapping Workshop at Toronto Botanical Garden was this past Saturday, December 15. It SOLD OUT very fast! We had such a great time! Here are some of participants packages. They learned gift wrapping basics, discovered different types of gift wrapping papers and their use and how-to pleats techniques to "dress up" their packages. Participants brought some small gifts to wrap during the class. 
One very generous participant brought these beautiful fresh and fragrant Blue Spruce branches to share with the group. It was such a nice surprise! 
Some pieces were incorporated into gift toppers and added a pretty nature touch. 
Aren't they amazing? I am so proud about all participants stunning styled packages!

I am done teaching my 2018 Holiday Workshops. Already working on my 2019 Spring Workshops. Stay tuned!

Mini Fresh Christmas Trees Workshop at the Toronto Botanical Garden. Participants work.




The Mini Fresh Christmas Trees Workshop at the Toronto Botanical Garden was last Saturday. Participants received material kits I put together to decorate mini houses, mini wreaths and a fresh mini Christmas tree. 

Kits included: Dresden paper, ribbon pieces, charms, pipe cleaner pieces (fluffy and metallic), wool cuttings, millinery flowers, music sheet strips, metallic thead and more!

Above are some of the mini ornaments (about an inch in size!) participants created for their mini Christmas trees. I made and glittered these mini houses that came in the kits with doors, roofs and windows were included. Some participants created their own!

On this image above a participant crafted roof details one of her houses inspired by Gothic European cathedrals. Isn't that amazing? Remember they are just about 1" in size!
