Non traditional colors for a non traditional wrap job. Can you tell me what kind of box this is???
I found this in my stash and knew it was the perfect box for the gift I had selected. It is a beautiful container with detailed wood burned designs.
Ideal for a gift for a girlfriend, daughter, or mother.
Something old (the box) and something new (the gloves). Can you tell me what kind of vintage box this is now?? Check out the inside of the cover. Equally as well done as the outside.
Who says the inside of the package cant be pretty too? A vintage holiday pin did the trick here. OK...maybe this one is a threefer.
The stunning brown ribbon....the chocolate wrapping around the peanut butter. Does that make any sense? Doesnt really matter...I think you know where Im going here! The metal is an old drill bit lightly sprayed with a sheer glitter. Me thinks it makes a handsome junk icicle!
The rose (left over from my last project...the ultimate in re-use) is housed in a water tube from the florist to keep it happy while under the tree. I love to use fresh flowers in wrapping whenever I can. Girlfriend get together gifts and hostess gifts are good candidates for this GETFRESH approach!
A close up of the bow shows you how it all works together.
All wrapped up and ready to go to the party!

 I am always looking for creative ways to wrap gifts. This one was for a girlfriend's gift exchange so I could really go to town and add touches of fresh. What fun. 
Did you make this?
After you make it, show it off to other members in the Member Junk area.
Post your project photos
