creative gift wrapping part 2...

Last year I wrapped all my presents with brown paper and decorated them with doilies. I love the contrast between the rough, down-to-earth-ness of the paper and the delicate lacy-ness of the paper doilies. Even if you can only find a couple of different types of doilies, with some scissors and glue you can make every present look different. All they need to finish them off is a bit of string or pretty ribbon.

This is the quickest of the ones pictured as we just used a pretty heart shaped doily as is. If you tie a ribbon around the present you don't even need to stick the doily down!...

Here we cut out the middle of a doily, following the flowery pattern, and wrapped it around the present...

Little circular doilies cut in half and rolled into a cone shape make a 3D decoration. Best for a package that doesn't get posted though!...


Don't forget that we will be at the Boutique Markets' special Twilight Markets at Portside this Friday evening from 5pm to 9om (stay away storm clouds!) and at the usual Sunday market at Portside from 8am to the later time of 3pm. Please come and say Hi if you are in Brisbane. The Boutique Markets are a great place to find original hand crafted Christmas presents for all those to hard to buy for friends and family!
