When you make something unique with your own hands, it can be very fulfilling. We invite you to enrich yourself with more than just the joy of folding paper but to make things with beautiful paper into useful things you can treasure.
Hate to wrap gifts, especially if you don’t have a box? Gift bags are perfect for just this problem. Learn to fold a basic gift bag which can be adjusted to suit your gift yet strong enough to carry a full bottle of wine.
