Seriously, are they not to die for?

So, here was my attempt (using what I had in the house) at wrapping a pretty little present for my newest little cousin.


My wrapping skills (and my photography skills for that matter) still leave a lot to be desired, but at least it is a step up from a gift bag, right?  🙂

    Very cute! I have lots of things to do those pretty packages…just not the motivation or time to implement! Maybe once the baby is here, I’ll have more time, right? Ha ha!

  2. Thank you for the lovely mention, though I should mention that the bottom one in brown and peach is not mine. That one is by Carolyn Roehm. Enjoy your gift wrapping!

    How fun. I hope your cousin enjoyed her gift!

    I found your post while looking for other WordPress blogs about gift wrapping. I’ve been writing a blog all about wrapping presents ( and it’s been so fun. I hope you keep sharing your gift wrapping photos!
