Michelle Mackintosh is on a mission to encourage people to reconnect with each other. Many of us send care packages without even realising it - get-well packs, student treats, food packages to expats, clothes packages to charities, family packages to loved ones in the army - the list can be endless. Put together with Michelle's beautiful collage aesthetic, Care Packages brings back the art of crafting packages with love and care. The book will be split into several chapters including reasons to send a care package, types of care packages, delivery, what to include in your care package and projects on how to design, craft and decorate your care package. Projects will be easy to achieve with step-by-step photography and instructions. This book will inspire a sense of time, love and care when corresponding with a loved one.
