It all started for me one Eid when I wanted to up my game on gift wrapping! From looking for unique ways to wrap gifts, to finding beautiful wrapping papers all the way to hand making anything I can think of my craft obsession grew rapidly. I’m always learning new techniques to make my crafts looks as luxurious and elegant as possible. Here I will share with you everything I’ve learned to help you do the same. I hope you enjoy my tutorials and project inspiration!
