I began designing and creating handmade gift cards 15 years ago.  Personalising cards for individuals and designing invites for major events, I witnessed first-hand how a beautiful creation could impact the recipient and make them feel truly special.  I wanted to incorporate this into my own gift wrapping and I have spent years fine tuning my skills.  I now wrap for local and international brands, and also run private and group sessions both in person and online.

In 2020 I began to showcase my skills on social media and with over 2 million followers regularly enjoying bite sized wrapping tips, demand grew for a longer, more detailed form of instructional video. And so The Wrapping Guide™ was formed.

Passionate about sustainability, I like to incorporate eco-friendly materials into my gift wrapping.  I also believe that one should be left to their own devices when it comes to creativity and therefore I filmed the tutorials individually so that you can combine techniques and find your own gift wrapping style.

I am so excited to see all the wonderful creations you come up with at home.  Please remember to share them on social media and tag me @effectivespaces.
