Reviews - What do customers think about Creative Gift Packaging?

Go to this book when fancy gift wrap bows aren't enough  Dec 31, 2001
Progress beyond mere giftwrap and create unique boxes and other containers for your gifts, be it food, clothes, jewelry, whatever. Small items and money really benefit from containers that don't immediately give away their contents like those velvet clamshells jewelry boxes or dollar shaped greeting cards do. Some of my favorite projects are:
-a trangular pyramid formed by folding a triangle shaped piece of paper.
-2 different colored heart shaped boxes that fit together to form a square with an 'S' curve between 2 opposite corners (think a diamond shaped yin-yang symbol).
-a flower box where folded paper forms a triangular cone on the bottom and a flower design on the top (a pink and white one are in the lower middle of the cover photo).
-a hexagonal box made of six individual triangular boxes.
-boxes specifically for food items, many with handles.
-boxes for floral items, some with handles.

These are just a few of many, many projects in this book. The first section of the book contains color photos of the finished projects and the rest of the book contains the instructions (with photos,diagrams and measurements) to make them. The diagrams can be photocopied to scale a project up to a required size.

AN IMPORTANT WARNING: The bulk of the projects don't contain step by step instructions. Immediately following the color photo section are step by step instructions for 5 boxes that are represenative of all of the projects in the book. A legend is given for what the thick or thin solid lines and dashed lines mean in the diagrams. All projects thereafter assume that you know to cut thick lines, but to fold thin lines like a valley withought being explicitly directed to do so.

Confused? Well, if a project required you to fold a piece of paper so that it opens like a book read from left to right, you would be shown a drawing of a square or rectangle with a thin line in the middle. There would also be a black and white photo of a piece of folded paper with the folded portion on the left side. If you didn't remember that thin lines mean you fold paper to open in a 'V' shape, you would have trouble. It's crucial that you do the step by step projects and learn the legend if you haven't done origami or similar crafts. If you think you'd need more guidance, this probably isn't the book for you.

If you do get the book, Enjoy! It's a real treat.
