Book Review - 'Giftwrapped' by Jane Means

Giftwrapped  by Jane Means
November 2014 Hardback £20
published by Jaqui Small 

The Christmas season is nearly upon us and the trend for beautifully wrapped gifts using unexpected embellishments and recycled materials has never been stronger.

In this fabulous book, Gift Wrap Guru Jane Means - gift wrapper to the rich and famous - celebrates her signature style and shares her secrets of a perfectly wrapped gift! 

Whether you are wrapping a simple box, a tube or an awkward shaped package, Jane shows you how to turn your gift into a work of art with a few simple techniques and a little imagination. Jane uses all sorts of papers, fabrics. ribbons and even upcycled vintage treasures to adorn and embellish and shares all her tricks and tips - including the art of tying a proper bow! (what a life saver!!)

Beautiful photographs illustrate each example - seriously, this is a book to drool over as much as a practical guide! Detailed glossaries of papers and materials and colourful moodboards will help you pick your style and the step by step instructions which will have you wrapping, tying and embellishing like a pro in no time at all. I particularly love the Japanese Pleating technique - so simple, so elegant!

I can't wait to get started on my Christmas pressie wrapping now using everything I have learnt from this gorgeous book!
