Wrap It Up

I had to wrap a gift recently and decided to get a bit creative. I normally put gifts in bags with different colour tissue paper and ribbon but this was for a special friend and i was feeling creative so i decided to use one of my many gift boxes.
I then added a piece of yellow tissue paper and the gift.
I then folded the tissue paper over the gift and closed the lid. Then I cut three pieces of three colours of ribbon to match the box and tied them in 2 bunches over the box.
Then I tied two pieces of ribbon in a bow and then folded a few of the other pieces over to make circles over the centre. My last touch was to add the 21st key and a cute birthday card, and it was done!
This was lots of fun for me to do, it looked great, and it took me 5 minutes to do. It was also SO affordable! The box cost me R10 (about $0.70c), the tissue paper cost me R0.50c (less than $0.05c) for the sheet (which I only used half of) and R15 (About $2) for the three rolls of ribbon, which can be used again and again. All it is about is looking around for the materials and keeping them aside for one day. Most of my pieces came from sales that i found years ago! That way you have the right tools when you need it. I hope this inspires you to give beautiful gifts, inside and out! Enjoy! xxx

Carried away...

I had every intention of blogging tonight, with lots of beautiful pictures and interesting topics, but I found myself doing something i seem to be making a habit of. I get onto my computer and decide to just check out 'a few' blogs before I start, and get so carried away that all of a sudden its 12am and i need to sleep! So unfortunatly tonights blog wont be filled with lots of amazing pictures, just one of my favourites instead. Enjoy! xxx

Im back from my blog-less Botswana trip, so to get back into my grove I thought I would share some of my favourite pictures. There has been talk about babies and children everywhere so I thought I would share my favourite pictures of children. There are just a few but I love how these kids are dressed and how stylish they look! It just proves that style doesnt come with age! Enjoy! xxx
