Introducing your Guide into the art of Eco-Friendly Gift Wrap:
Hi, my name is Vivienne Anthon from The Daily Wrap.
They say it takes 10,000 hours of focused activity to become a world beating expert in any pursuit! That was the challenge I gave herself when deciding that Australia needed its own wrapping guru to showcase how gift wrapping can become a creative art form in and of itself.
But words are cheap. The proof is in the pudding, or in this case in the creative implementation of gift wrapping using everyday paper, tape, products and decorations. So, I set myself the task to wrap for 365 days of one whole year.
And now I'm here to share my know-how but upcycle style!
