After working on the cover for the gift guide, I felt for weeks that I never wanted to wrap another present again. But it didn’t take long for my love of wrapped packages and little boxes to come back, and now I’m really excited to wrap all my gifts this week; I plan to take my time and try some new methods this year. Founded by an Australian designer living in Tokyo, Hello Sandwich has been a frequent source of inspiration for fun, clever packaging and paper projects. These are images of some of the projects that Ebony of Hello Sandwich did for the Crafts Dept. as part of a blogger giftwrap challenge. I love the pom-poms, but the polka dot paper fan bow is pretty amazing, too. If you haven’t wrapped up your gifting yet (literally, ha!) then head here to check out more pretty packaging goodness.
