Gift-Wrap Like a Pro! with Brianna Classen, 7-8pm

Everyone wants to their gifts to look beautiful sitting under the tree, but getting that professional gift wrap look can be difficult. Brianna Classen is here to help! She spent more than a few holiday seasons as a professional gift wrapper, and she can show you all the tricks and tips to make your presents look perfect. In this Skillshare session, she’ll show you how to wrap packages with precision, as well as techniques for those difficult, odd shaped presents. She’ll also show you how to make your ribbons and bows look perfect, and how to make elegant gift bags. Attendees are encouraged to bring a present or two to wrap with Brianna. Wrapping paper and ribbon will be provided, however if you have your own gift-wrap you’d like to use you’re welcome to bring it. Click here to learn more.

Wreath-Making 101 with Linda Myers, 8-9pm
A nice wreath on your door is a staple of the holiday season. But a decorated wreath is costly. That’s why Linda Myers has been decorating her own wreaths for years. She’ll show you her tricks on for turning a plain $2 wreath into a beautiful holiday decoration that can cost upwards of $40 in stores. Each student will be given a plain wreath and decorations, and Linda will show you how to turn them into the perfect ornament. You’ll not only take home a wreath, but the skills to make them over and over again yourself! And they also make great gifts too! Click here to learn more.
