Caroline Birkett trained as a textile designer and after gaining a postgraduate diploma spent several years designing luxury knitwear collections. A love of books led her to turn her talents to designing and writing craft projects, contributing to a wide variety of books and magazines. She has also designed new products with a large ribbon manufacturer. Her first book was on embroidery, giving a contemporary twist to cross stitch. Now she has brought her flair for combining colours, patterns and textures to the medium of paper.From Booklist:
Gift wrapping, according to former textile designer Birkett, is a feat to be accomplished and then admired. Her instructions include those both nimble and not and range from covering a basic box to fashioning crackers for all occasions. There is something for everyone in these 150-plus different projects. Each runs about a page or two with minimal directions, large color photographs, and occasional tips on best/alternate methods. Some of the more unusual ideas: a rose-embellished bow, an origami box, a paper fan bow, and woven paper baskets, among others. At the end are the basics: materials, tools, and the five fundamental techniques (measuring, transferring, scoring, folding, and cutting). This handy how-to will leave gift givers rapt with pleasure.
