Learn to make your own gift boxes and gift bags in this afternoon workshop. We'll start with folding and gluing techniques to make your own bags using decorative papers, and then make several versions of cut, scored, and folded box structures with lids. You'll leave with a full set of samples to use for gifts, and the ability to make a gift bag or box in any size you need.
