Hey ya’ll! Hope this finds you happy and healthy and enjoying a wonderful sunny day! I just love reading Diane’s blog every week, and I am so excited to be enjoying it today with you! I love to give gifts, I blog about it often:), and I think presentation is everything! Don’t you agree? Wrapping presents in pretty and creative ways often can take a o-hum gift up a few notches.
I think about a favorite boutique I worked in that hand wrapped each find in signature black paper and a billowing gold ribbon. Perfect, huh? I like my gifts to look like that too, so a while back my sister and I picked out our “signature” paper and ribbon.
OK, I felt a little Steel Magnolias with the signature colors and all…but I am really enjoying it! I chose something that could go boys/girls/men/women/birthday/baby/shower/etc…which for me ended up being navy. Then I invested in several rolls of thick lime green and while polka dot ribbon. It’s lovely. It always looks good. I always have it ready. My closet isn’t crammed with rolls and ribbon.
I found some ideas to get you thinking about your signature wrapping and grouped them into traditional, modern and natural.
Several of these shown are from Olive Paper and the bottom center one is homemade on Design Sponge. Another great source pictured above is Whimsy Paper. love love love. Most of the others are from local boutiques, don’t you want to go shopping now!
Oh I love this too! Uncommon Goods has paper that you can plant. And then it blooms. yay!
Speaking of blooms, I am off to work in my container garden. I am trying to grow tomatoes, strawberries, squash and cucumbers, along with a few herbs. Wish me luck!
