Wedding Burlap Gift Wrap
Another weekend, another Shower! This weekend it was a Bridal Shower. I am one of those people who enjoy going to Showers, they are happy occassions! This bride to be is an eco loving science teacher, so I thought she would enjoy a more natural wrapping for her gift.
I used kraft paper made out of recycled materials, burlap, a doily and some reclaimed ribbon.
I added a simple brown tag and embellished it with a beautiful cluny lace heart that I found in a box of old ribbon my mother gave me. My mother used to sew a lot and has passed a lot of her boxes of "treasurers" on to me now that she has retired her needle and thread.
Oh, by the way - this bride recieved the most adorable Kate Spade china at her shower!! I believe there was some envy involved! Don't you think that after 28 years or so of marriage we should all have another shower?
