Expert tips to make your Christmas a wrap
Gift wrapping tips are handy at this time of the year.

Gift wrapping guru Vivienne Anthon will make her ‘presents’ known to help Logan residents make a head-start on their Christmas preparations at Logan City Council Libraries.

City Lifestyle and Community Chairperson, Councillor Steve Swenson, said Ms Anthon from the Daily Wrap would hold gift wrapping workshops throughout the week showing her skills as Australia’s expert gift wrapper.

Vivienne is a former lawyer who went on to run a coeducational private school. She then moved into the business environment as CEO of a large business before getting involved in business education and consulting.

Vivienne then decided that Australia needed a wrapping guru to showcase how gift wrapping can be a creative art form and believes there’s nothing that double-sided tape cannot fix.

Vivienne set herself the task to wrap for 365 days of one year and use techniques she hasn’t mastered before.

Cr Swenson said Vivienne’s visit to the City of Logan was the ideal opportunity for people to learn some valuable tips and tricks to help them master the Christmas wrapping frenzy.

“Come along and you’ll then be able to impress your friends and family with fantastically wrapped gifts this festive season,” he said.

Cr Swenson said Logan’s libraries were also hosting Christmas craft sessions in the lead-up to Christmas Day.

“People will be able to learn how to make their own Christmas hanging ornament at Greenbank Library from 1.30pm on November 29,” he said.

“Participants will be able to use fabrics, felt, ribbon and embellishments to turn an old CD into a hanging Christmas or wall ornament.”

Cr Swenson said another Christmas craft workshop would be held from 1.30pm to 3.30pm on December 8 at Logan West Library.

Bookings for all workshops are essential and can be made by contacting your local Logan City Council library or online at
