How do you wrap gifts? Do you just throw them in a gift bag? I'll admit I often do at least for gifts for kids. However I always love playing with gift wrapping. At work we charge at least $6 plus the supplies for gift wrapping. I'm always amazed when people pay it. I will admit the gifts always look beautiful when they are done. They are usually done in a seam line wrapping style. And today's book that I am sharing gives a tutorial in this kind of wrapping!

The book is Perfect Gift Wrapping Ideas by Hiroe Miyaoka. This book has so many fun and great ideas. The ideas use various things from around the house like newspaper, craft paper and even washi paper.

Ever have a cylindrical shaped gift to wrap? I never know what to do for them, but this book has a tutorial to wrap them beautifully.

There are even tutorials to make paper bags in different styles.

Even ones with handles as well as other simple everyday wrapping ideas!

Then to top the gift there are tutorials for different types of simple bows.

And there are two pages of tags, labels and stamps for you to use on your gifts as well.

This book has simple ideas to more complicated wrapping situations. I love it!! It is bringing the beauty back to gifts. How do you wrap your gifts?
