It's the Monday before Christmas and all through the house…we're scrambling to finish crafting and gift-wrapping each package to perfection! If you're anything like us, you would agree that the outside of the package is just as important as the contents inside. It takes a bit more time and effort to hand dye a ribbon, or cut a paper snowflake, but so totally worth it when your loved ones see that you care enough to add those thoughtful, by-hand details on their gifts. You know what's often sooo not worth it, though? Waiting in giant lines at big-box craft stores the week before Christmas to buy wrapping supplies!
All throughout this week, we plan to get resourceful by using items from around the house to make beautifully wrapped gifts that are truly unique & cut down on waste. Here's a bit of inspiration so that you can do the same! Show us how you're wrapping your gifts this week with hashtag #MakeItMondaySF!
We’re starting to get in the holiday spirit here at Spoonflower HQ, and what better way to celebrate the season than with holiday crafting, gift wrapping, friends and festivities? Please join us on Saturday, December 13th from 2-4 in the Spoonflower Greenhouse in Durham, NC for a Spoonflower Holiday Party extravaganza!
We’ll have make-and-take crafts, refreshments, tours of the Spoonflower facility, and even a gift-wrapping station with all the paper, trimmings and supplies you need to wrap your presents–far away from prying eyes and interruptions!
We’ll also be collecting toys for the Softies for Mirabel project, so bring any soft toy you’ve knitted, crocheted or sewn and we’ll send it to the collection center in Australia. (More details for our Softies for Mirabel Handmade Toy Drive here.)
To RSVP to the holiday party and see more details, check out the Meetup page. We look forward to seeing you in the Greenhouse soon!
