Would you like to wrap gifts creatively, with a unique flair and not have to spend a small fortune? Or what about making your family and friends think a professional wrapped the gift you present to them?

In reality, you did what I did, attended a gift wrapping workshop, learned a few tips of the trade and voila, you're an expert wrapper just like a professional stylist.

Learn the art of stylie gift wrapping. Use this style for a Wedding or Christmas gift.

I was invited to attend a creatively inspiring workshop in Lane Cove run by two sisters, Vivienne and Jacky. There were eight eager novice wrappers keenly wanting to know the secrets of making a gift look professionally wrapped. No previous skills are required but being handy with scissors does help.

We sat around a table at Bar Blaq, a quirky bar/restaurant run by hospitality students who provided us with refreshments. By refreshments, I mean the best-looking mojitos that rivalled the creativeness of Vivienne's gorgeous wrapping skills. Now, I'm not saying this helped our wrapping skills but what an awesome way to learn something new.

Another great thing about this workshop is all supplies are provided, you just book and turn up ready to be inspired. Vivienne even gives you a bag so you can take your wrapped 'gifts' home to show everyone your handy skills learned in two hours of creative fun.

I never knew double-sided tape could come in so handy. This, along with better wrapping paper choices, will be staples in my gift wrapping cupboard. Vandoros and Inky Co. are two websites now on my favourites list as well.

The three important tips you learn will help with all types of items you need to wrap. Think about all the gifts you buy throughout the year - Father's Day, Mother's Day, weddings, birthdays, Christmas, Easter, get well, christenings, name days, friendship, farewells. Let's not forget Halloween, graduation, kids parties ... the list goes on depending on your circle of work colleagues, friends and family.

Just think how impressed they will be that not only have you bought them something but also took the time to care enough to put extra effort into how you present the gift to them.

What are these three important tips? Well, here is a sneak peak of some of the tips you will learn. The others? Attend one of the Stylie Gift Wrapping Workshops (they are run regularly in various cities, check here for dates) and you too will be wrapping professionally in no time.

Vivienne and Jacky didn't just teach us about techniques, they were full of ideas about recycling and repurposing everyday items such as flowers from your garden, sprigs of herbs, vanilla pods (for kitchen tea gifts) and how to reuse left over awkward-shaped wrapping paper.
