Gift expert Gina Tepper is the founder and designer of the website Giftdecorating.com and GinaTepper.com where she demonstrates how to create fun party decor and crafts using inexpensive, easily accessible materials. Gina’s designs focus on projects that often use recycled or on-hand materials to not only give, but give back to the environment.
She appears monthly on both NBC affiliate in Baltimore and ABC affiliate Let’s Talk Live in Washington DC demonstrating party crafts and decorations. Her crafting newsletter has a global readership — her ideas have been translated and posted on crafting forums worldwide. She is currently an expert gift wrapper for 3M/Scotch Brand and many of her original crafts and gift wrap designs, along with step-by-step instructions, appear on the www.scotchbrand.com website. Her designs have also been featured on the WomansDay.com, USA Weekend Magazine and a Scotch sponsored holiday segment on Oprah.com.
She has worked with the Orlando Magic NBA team to create custom gift boxes for their Black Tie and Tennis Gala. Gina has served as a judge for the Annual Scotch Brand Gifted Wrapper Contest 2008 and 2009 and wrapped gifts for Harpo’s Oprah.com holiday sweepstakes.
