Make wrap mingle

Papermill Studios London

We had such a great day a few weekends ago at the #makewrapmingle afternoon we hosted with Zeena Shah. It was a crafting bonanza, with gift wrapping demonstrations from Geraldine from Little Big Bell, confetti crackers, secret envelope making and lots more! We also had lots of stunning hair braids and waves courtesy of Prettly.

Serious confetti cracker making (find the instructions here, you can use a normal pencil, the rectangle rubber of a Blackwing pencil, and the above uses gold and white bakers twine.)

Some customers from my mailing list signed up to receive some secret post from the event.

There were lots of creative envelopes made with our wooden envelope template, washi tape and glitter tapes!
