I love to give gift hampers and whilst on a recent trip to the Yasawa Islands, I was lucky enough to see an inspiring basket weaving demonstration which really grabbed my attention.
I am a huge fan of botanical prints and anything natural and luckily I had a camera to hand to cover this amazing project.
I was so impressed that I started having crazy ideas about running my gift wrapping courses in a tropical climate covering gift hampers with a bit of basket weaving thrown in!
The basket was made out of part of a palm tree leaf, and I realise that sadly many of us don’t have access to a palm tree in the back garden.
It will resemble a really clean herringbone pattern as shown here.
You will then repeat the same the opposite side.
After the hectic 2014, I had a thoroughly good holiday and have come back ready to face the world.
This is another exciting year with lots in the pipeline and we will keep you posted!
From myself and my team we would like to wish you all a very happy and healthy 2015
