I am very pleased that one of my gift wrap designs has been used in this book by Ellie Laycock (Author and owner of Hunted and Stuffed). "Creating the Vintage Look" - 35 ways to upcycle for a stylish home, is out now to buy. My "Kimono" gift wrap design was used for the Crate Bedside Table. The book is full of creative upcycling projects that you can do around your home. Great Christmas present idea too!

About the book:
Discover how to upcycle to make unusual and unique homeware with Creating the Vintage Look. Upcycling is about taking something old, vintage, treasured or possibly even broken, and giving it a new lease of life by turning it into something new. It's a thrifty way of decorating and enhancing your home that avoids waste, but is also stylish. Here, Ellie Laycock shows you how you can make truly beautiful objects from things you might otherwise have thrown away. Be inspired by the ingenuity of her projects - including turning old tin trays into chic magnetic noticeboards, using teapots as quirky planters, transforming a vintage fruit crate into a rustic bedside table and converting metal cheese graters into tea light holders. All of the 35 projects have clear instructions and artworks to guide you on how to make them, and are grouped on a room-by-room basis, plus a helpful techniques section will teach you any skills you need to know.
