It's new book season already and I was so excited to receive a review copy of Sally J Shim's new book, Pretty Packages: 45 Creative Gift-Wrapping Projects. Sally and I have been friends for a long time now (I wish you still lived here, Sally!) and she is a really wonderful person who loves life, travel, food, and design. And she has a great sense of humor. As a designer she has a keen eye and a sophisticated minimal style and this book captures all that perfectly.
This book is so HAPPY. It makes me smile looking through it. The girls ripped it out of my hands when it came. These are some of my favorite wrapping ideas from her book. It's full of simple, easy to reproduce ideas with a less is more style that is really lovely. Here's a project from the book, super cute!
