Gift Box and Packaging Ideas Class

Receiving a gift is such a lovely thing - receiving a handmade gift in pretty packaging raises the anticipation even before the gift is opened.  I have to admit I have always been drawn to colour, pattern and pretties.  A bit of sparkle will catch my eye from a few feet away.  This is how many companies get us to purchase their products in the supermarket from a shelf of similar products.  If it stands out from the crowd and is appealing to the eye then we buy.  Visual merchandising is a big deal, and I can guarantee that if you are a person who likes to give little gifts or equally you make jewellery, key rings, soaps, lip balms, preserves, knitted or crochet items for a business, that they will look far more appealing and gift worthy packaged nicely.
This does not have to involve big costs or huge amounts of time, in fact it's quick easy & fun and can reflect the recipient or your business as personalisation is simple.
I am hoping to run a class at The Busy Bee Cafe, Burley Grove, Downend very soon to teach a Box Making and Packaging Class, and I'm gauging whether there will be interest in this type of class.
If you would like to learn how easy it is to make items like these

please email: or phone/txt 07854777378 or drop by The Busy Bee Cafe and talk to Hazel and register your interested.

Love to see you at this fun class!
