It's A Wrap Birthday Blog Hop


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. 

If you got here from Cheryl's blog you are on the right track. If you are just popping in and want to check out the cool ideas from the beginning.. check out Jenny's Blog. I'm positive you won't be disappointed!!! 

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!!!

I am so partial to doilies, that I have to say the doily is my favorite part of your whole project. It adds such a feminine style and softness. So, so pretty. TFS

Christy said...

LOOOOOVE! The doily is awesome :)

Amy E said...

That's such a tough question...I love all the elements in this project! If I had to pick one, I think it would be the gorgeous bow with that beautiful ribbon. It really ties (no pun intended!) the whole thing together!

This is so, so pretty. The doily was the first thing to catch my eye. I would have a hard time parting with it. Hugs, Debi

You can not go wrong with pink!! Using the doily is so fun but, I think my favorite item on your packaging is the gift tag and the little roses in the corner. They just give the present more of an old time feel. Your DT sister~ Sharon~
