I Won!!! (Scotch Brand Most Gifted Wrapper Contest)

Scotch Brand Most Gifted Wrapper Oh me, oh my! I am still pinching myself. This morning I competed in the Scotch Brand Most Gifted Wrapper Contest at Bryant Park in New York City. It was both stressful and a blast and as you can see in the photo. . . I WON! Check out this great little video they just posted, recapping our morning event.

  4. Congratulations! What fun! I can’t imagine have to think on the spot like that. You are truly gifted!

    • I will be honest, the first round was the toughest and I was shaking like a leaf. I felt that I failed it as 10 mins and materials they gave us that didn’t really go together stumped me. The second and final round I relaxed into it and just had fun!

  5. How wonderful! Can we see more pictures? I’d love to see how you wrapped the duck and tuba, and even more of the plane!

    • I didn’t have any one there to snap shots for me so I am waiting for the PR agency to get me theirs. But I will tell you that the duck… I make a gift bag from the wrap similar to the one I posted here on the blog. I honestly think that is what saved me from getting cut. :-)
