PACKAGING 101

WORKSHOP DESCRIPTION

Do you love pretty little packages and want to learn how to create them at home? Do you need ideas on how to package simple + fun party favors? Packaging 101 is the class for you! In this hands-on three-hour class you will learn how to create handmade wrapping paper using various techniques as well as how to make custom gift tags, gift labels and cards. You will also learn how to package goodies for party favors. Our goal is for you to leave with the creative inspiration to package gifts with a personal and handmade touch. Participants will have ample time to play with the packaging + craft supplies provided. Each participant will receive a supply kit [included in the cost of the workshop] filled with supplies to take home. One of a kind packaging kits and stationery goodies will also be available for sale the day of the class.
