Valerie is on a mission to reduce waste, and repurpose everyday materials around us. As such, she’s never having to buy wrapping paper or gift bags, but has a neat method for turning collected paper into cute gifts boxes of all sizes. 

Come along and learn to make cute gift boxes from all sorts of paper through some simple folding techniques. You’ll certainly have time to make a small collection during the class, using beautiful and nostalgic paper from Valerie’s own collection.

It’s a lovely way to add a personal touch to your gift giving, or a fun way to organise your desk of all those odd bits a pieces! Things like old calendars, sheet music, band posters, maps, even pamphlets from a sentimental holiday! These could all be repurposed into useful gift boxes (or keepsake boxes).

A great variety of vintage paper and instruction provided, just come and have some fun!

What will we cover?

In this hands-on class you will learn how to fold gift boxes from everyday paper – a ratio that works to create different sized gift boxes. See what papers and materials work best, and whip up a collection in class.
