Crafts: Arabic gifts for a Dutch girl

I am leaving my job next week & I am very sorry to say goodbye to one of my co-workers. She is a very creative, fun-loving & caring girl and I wanted to surprise her. So I decided I’d give her the new M.I.A. album (Matangi), a Happinezz book (“I give you power”) & a siwak (natural toothbrush).

Arabic wrapped gifts

She was very happy about the presents! Since she is interested in Arabic culture and habits, I decided to wrap the presents up in Pepin Papers Arabesque gift wrapping paper (which you can read more about here) and embossed a simple craft sachet with an Arabic stamp. The labels read “For people who think” & “There is no creativity without freedom”.
