A Little Gift Box Tutorial

Its a rainy day in Dunsborough today. Its Summer here now in Australia, and we’ve had a dry spell so I’m loving the rain! We live in a semi -rural part of the state with a mixture of pasture and native bush land and it was starting to get a bit parched so this rain is a blessing.

Rainy day view from my studio. Those are kangaroos bunkering down on the right.

Mind you, I’m a ‘Winter girl’ . I love it when its green and lush. When its chilly and rainy and I can bunker down either in my studio or in front of an fire with glass of red wine in hand and a good book. I’ll let you in on a little secret of mine. I have a small bucket list, and on that list is to celebrate a White Christmas. Of course  I will have to travel to the Northern Hemisphere to experience this, but one day….

My fantasy idea of White Christmas

I’ll show you pics of how we celebrate Chrissy in a few weeks, but in the meantime I’m sitting in my studio about to parcel up orders of scarves and brooches that are to be sent off to customers. I love the thought that I am spreading colour and art around the world!

One of the items purchased was a shawl pin, so I thought I would show you the little gift wrap technique that I came up with that keeps the shipping parcel standard large envelope width. Being in Australia, shipping around the world can be quite expensive. Lower shipping prices is always a consideration in someones decision to purchase an item.

  1. Super cute! And as someone who grew up in LA I can completely relate to the bucket list item of wanting to experience a white Christmas. 🙂 I moved to Canada though so I am very hopeful that bucket list item will receive a check mark!
