With graduation & summer wedding season coming up I thought it might be fun to jazz up a few packages...& give you guys some ideas on how to make gift giving a little extra special this year ;.)
I have been working on wrapping a graduation gift for a fantastic graduate & bundling up some goodies for a cute couple getting ready to tie the knot....
I decide to make a gift basket for the fancy couple...;.) & customize the card & tags. * The most important tip when giving a gift basket (in my opinion) is a good container. A container sets the entire mood of what sort of items they will find inside...I decided to go organic chic with burlap haha. I really loved the texture of the natural fibers & I love how balanced it looked with silk ribbon roses, (which I used for a decorative tag). It gave just the right touch of His & Her.
The next gift I worked on was wrapping a graduation gift for my best friend who is graduating from dental school today. She is so amazing & I am so very proud of her, so I just had to have that reflect in the goodies I gave her. I wanted to wrap it with printed paper & unique ribbon in order for it to scream "I'm too pretty to open....but open me anyway" haha. SO here it goes.....
I purchased bird paper because let's face it, who doesn't love them some birdies? I also stuck scalloped ribbon on top of some clearance Martha Stewart ribbon (such great quality) with glue dots. If you notice there is no sign of scotch tape around this present...that's because * I LOVE using glue dots to stick the paper under each fold so that I don't have to use scotch tape & lose the essence of the special package I am trying to create. The Hubs also helped me to make pom pom's out of coordinating yarn which brings the perfect touch of whimsy. My favorite part of the entire thing is the contrast of colors. I chose bright pinks & corals to bounce off the teal. It is just so cheery, just like she is.

So I hope this was a fun & helpful Friday post to set you into your weekend with ideas ;.) I will see you back here on Monday! Until then I have a graduation to attend ;.)
