PRETTY PACKAGES BOOK & PACKAGING KIT GIVEAWAY

I am happy to share that my book, Pretty Packages: 45 Creative Gift-Wrapping Projects, is officially on sale on-line and in stores. Thank you to everyone who pre-ordered the book and for sharing in my excitement about Pretty Packages. The support I have received from family, friends, and blog readers has meant the world to me. I really wish I were in the States right now so I could see copies of Pretty Packages in stores in person, but for now I am still pinching myself that the book is out! 

As I mentioned before, Pretty Packages is a wonderful resource for people who appreciate good packaging as well as for those who would love to make their gifts more special. With 45 step-by-step gift-wrapping projects as well as basic how-to instructions on deciding how to wrap a gift and various ribbon tying techniques, Pretty Packages provides the reader with multiple ways to create a truly unique gift. And almost all of the techniques in the book can be easily translated in to packaging ideas for parties, weddings, and even business branding. 

To celebrate the release of Pretty Packages, I am giving away a signed copy of Pretty Packages and a special packaging kit to three lucky people. Below is a sneak peek of what will be included in the packaging kit, which I created with the packaging aficionado in mind. I want the recipients to be surprised, but there will be many packaging goodies that I picked up here in Korea and on my travels to Japan. 

There are two ways to enter the Pretty Packages Book & Packaging Kit Giveaway (you can enter both ways):

1.  Pin a photograph from this post on Pinterest and leave the link in the comments below (please make sure to leave your email address in the allotted box so I can contact you if you are one of the winners).

2. Follow @sallyjshim on Instagram. Re-gram any Pretty Package photograph from my Instagram feed and tag the photo with @sallyjshim and #sallyjshimprettypackages. Then leave a comment here with your Instagram handle letting me know you entered via Instagram.

Entries must be posted by Sunday, September 14 at 9pm EST. Three winners will be chosen at random. The winners will be contacted via email so please make sure you leave your email address in the allotted box in the comments section below.

9.14.14 UPDATE: GIVEAWAY IS NOW CLOSED. Thank you to everyone who participated and spread the Pretty Packages love. Winners are: @makebakesew,@kellyleedesignhouse, and SJ. Emails have been sent out to all winners. 

P.S. If you happen to spot Pretty Packages at your local bookstore or shop, I would love if you could take a snapshot and send it to me at hello[at]sallyjshim[dot]com or use the hashtag #sallyjshimprettypackages on Instagram. Thank you!
