pinning "outside of pinterest"

For those of you who have ordered a garland from me or received anything else from me in the mail, you know that I sort of have a need to make the package as fun as possible. Whenever I send anything to anyone, I like to go the extra mile and make it an "experience". So after getting some emails from some of you who liked my packaging, I thought I might share one of my favorite things to tuck away inside of a box. It is super simple, super inexpensive, and super crazy, just the way I like it! I'm talking about safety pins people....Courtney style. I simply buy larger safety pins at JoAnn's & cover them with different scraps of yarn and string. I know it might not seem like much, but when you open something up and see beautiful tissue paper pinned together with fun rocks your socks off! Just trust me.

Sooooo much more lovely than just using regular tape, right?! They sell gold as well as silver pins at the craft store but the gold ones were more expensive. So I just used my spray paint (you guessed it) once again to spray a light coat before wrapping them with string. I love these little babies. Now don't you all wish you ordered a garland so I could package it up and send it to you? HAHA, Just kidding! I hope you guys have an awesome weekend. I am so thankful it's Friday...



I love to hear your thoughts lovelies! Comment away!
