Hi ya'll and WELCOME to our Thankful Thursday " IT'S A WRAP" blog hop!! We are soo excited to show you the sooo many ways to make a gift special just by the wrapping!!! I'm sure you get tired of the same ole' thing, as we all do, and I just know you will get lots of ideas from all of the guests and DT members in this hop.

So, a month or so ago I saw an idea on Pinterest (I think.. sorry..) using a brown bag and a doilie. Well, I LOVED the look and thought.. hmmm I want something KINDA similar, but with pink and pearls and a tag. Well.. my sweet friend Boni raised her hand HIGH when I needed a friend to make a doilie a specific size. So, she made the gorgeous doilie on my wrapping and I just know my sweet friend who receives the gift inside will not only love what's inside, but have a great use for the yumminess outside!!! I LOVE pearls and decided to "thread" some pearls through the holes in the doilie and use to keep the doilie on the tissue paper.. instead of using tape or anything else. Worked like a charm!!! I pulled out the old trusted Bow Easy (which I found I had totally forgotten how to even use.. thank you Gina K ) I attached the bow to the doilie with a lil piece of thread that can be cut to use the doilie and the bow separately. (Yep, thinking ahead.. I'm soo on it..hehe) The flowers are Prima and the ribbon is PTI.
Here's my wrapping idea. You can change colors, use different embellishments, etc. I tried to keep it elegant yet simple. Sometimes less is best!!!
Isn't that doilie GORGEOUS!!!!! Thank you again Boni.. for helping me make this a specially wrapped gift for my sweet friend!!!
