Before I get carried away with my long to do list today, I thought I'd share a project I worked on last week.
I was not able to attend a baby shower for a friend who is expecting her first child on March 1st but I couldn't pass up the opportunity to get a little something to celebrate this special time!
Her colors for the nursery are chocolate brown, hot pink, light pink and a sage green. SO CUTE! I decided to use those colors when choosing my gift bag, tissue paper and card. Anyone who knows me knows that presentation is a big thing for me....yes, this is just one of many quirks you'll get to learn about me this time around! I discovered a long time ago that I can get carried away with bags, bows and wrapping paper so to make things a little simpler, I choose papers and bags that can be used for many different occasions. And since I refuse to pay $5.00 or more for a card I always make my own. In the future I'll show my gift wrapping solutions, but for now here is the card...
and here is the card attached to the bag.....
I don't believe you have to spend an arm and a leg to create something beautiful. The gift bag was $1.49, the hot pink tissue was .99 cents and I made the card with supplies I had on hand. For under $3.00 I was able to give something beautiful that came from the heart. How can you go wrong with that?
I'd love to hear your gift wrap solutions!
