Good Things Come in Small Packages...

... or that least that's what my Grammy used to say to me.  I have an obsession with wrapping paper and ribbons and bows and tags.  I've even devoted an entire Pinterest board to adorable, imaginative and inspiring ideas for gift wrapping.  Half the gift, well maybe a quarter of the gift is the pretty packaging that it comes in - in my opinion, anyway.

I should seriously consider buying stock in Paper Source - I feel like I'm in there all the time buying all sorts of great wrapping supplies.  Here are a few items I recently picked up to wrap a birthday present - bright and colorful watercolor paper, traditional paper bag paper, assorted colors of baker's twine, a gift box and birthday card.

Instead of using a typical "clothing box," I rolled the shirt in tissue paper and neatly placed it in this fun square sized craft box.

If using multiple ribbons or string, first cut it all to the same length.   Use this easy step by step process to tie the perfect "Tiffany" bow.  

And ta-da!  Now how "happy" is this Happy Birthday gift!

Hope you are all having a great week!  My kiddos have been fighting a fever and nasty cough for the last couple of days.  ugh - serenity now!


  1. Loving the wrapping...and the top! Which one is it from Lulu?
