It's round. It's heavy. And it's perfect for summer time. Yap, I'm talking about Watermelon, and my new tutorial is all about how to creatively gift wrap it.
Diana is the winner of our 2016 Holiday Gift Wrapping Contest. If you follow my social media sites, you may have already seen her stunning gift wrapping design. We were really impressed by all the detailed efforts she put into creating the design, from carefully selecting the materials and textures, to creating harmony with all the different design elements.
Well, here we are at the end of 2016!
In Japan it's a tradition to do a deep house cleaning, to eliminate any accumulated clutter from the past year and tidy up the entire house. I think of myself as more of a minimalist and try to own primarily essential things...well, my studio being an exception.
Every year, holiday gift wrapping is an exciting fun event for me. I prepare wrapping designs and all the materials with sparkling & dazzling colors, line up my tools beside the work station, enjoy a cup of coffee or tea and play some of my favorite holiday music.
I love traveling because it always opens my mind and provides design inspirations and educational experiences that enhance things learned from schools or books.
I'm currently working on the holiday design projects and I desperately wanted some cultural inspiration.
