Happy Friday, Friends!
The girls and I are getting together tomorrow to celebrate my friend, Norma’s, birthday. So this week, I sat down to work on a birthday set for her.
I really love pretty gift packaging. And you all know me by now… brown paper packages are one of my most favorite things. But Norma’s plain old gift bag was in serious need of some dressing up. And since she has an autumn birthday, this was a perfect excuse to pull out a few of my favorite fall collections and put together a little woodland harvest gift set.
Do you all recognize these papers? Super oldies from WeRMemoryKeepers and Imaginisce that must be five years old now, but they still make me smile. Love those little woodland critters. One of the best things about hand-delivering birthday treats is that you don’t have to worry about the bulk. So I had fun with the layers and dimension here, and pulled out some of my favorite old tricks that I haven’t used for awhile. Girly scallops and machine stitching. And the old timey sweetness of a vintage doily.
The supplies I’ve used are linked and/or listed below:
Imaginisce Happy Harvest Collection: patterned paper, chipboard stickers
WeRMemoryKeepers Autumn Splendor Collection: textured cardstock pad, embossed stickers
