Craft Ideas for the Fortnum and Mason Stationery Event

I’m really looking forward to being involved in the new stationery room launch at Fortnum and Mason in Piccadilly next week.

Our ribbons are stocked in the store and I will be gift wrapping live in their revamped stationery room on Friday 4th and Saturday 5th April.

As a ribbon stockist of the store i’ve already had a glimpse at their new collections and have been drooling over their Italian gift wrap… I have always been addicted to luxury stationery and have always have a good stock in the shop.

With it being stationary week in early April I thought I would share some creative paper projects which are easy to do and great for kids too.

Even if you don’t have a supply of gorgeous wrapping paper you can simply print your own if you have a PC. Type a message and print it out on A4 paper which is ideal for small gifts

I’m currently involved with several exciting projects which will be out later in the year, and wanted to highlight how easy it is to add personal and creative touches to gift wrapping

You can easily make paper Roses by cutting a swirl out of a circle.

Wrap it around your finger and let go and a rose will form. You can also add a small amount of blue or double sided tape to secure them

I’ve also cut out scalloped circles and this can be easily done by folding a square piece of paper into quarters and triangles then cutting a curve so when you open it your scalloped design is revealed

I have layered several of these scallops on top of each other in various sizes and secured them with a button and wire

Friends will love the fact that you’ve taken some thought and devised up a personal creation.  Add some of our stitched ribbon it is transformed in to a luxury gift

Mother’s Day Wrapping Event at Clifton Nurseries

 

One of my favourite haunts is Clifton Nurseries close to the Little Venice Canals in the heart of London.

Despite being in Central London, you feel like you’re tucked away in a unique oasis and it’s been a hidden gem since the mid 19th century.

Last week I was there doing a photo shoot and had to wrap some plants, which ended up being sold very quickly afterwards, so it made sense to squeeze in a quick wrapping service in time for Mother’s Day.

The Spring Gift Wrapping Event will be taking place on Friday 28th March from 11am-2pm, just prior to Mothering Sunday.

Whether it’s a Miniature Rose or a French Lavender for a birthday, Mothers Day or a housewarming present, your plants will be complimentary wrapped while you wait.

The gift wrapping service will be from 11am – 2pm so you can enjoy a coffee with friends or lunch in the buzzing Quince Tree Cafe on site, whilst your wrapping is being done (I can recommend their cakes and biscuits!)
