Over the years I’ve found myself with a variety of unintentional collections of this, that and the other. Things that I’m sure I’ll need in the future so can’t bear to throw away…You know the kind of thing….Odd buttons, old keys, mini toiletries from hotels and…..Gift tags!
Yes, it’s a thin line between ‘collector’ and ‘hoarder’ at this point and my profession as a gift wrapper won’t save me on this one as after rummaging through a very large box of gift tags, it’s clear my love of them started way before my business began! (Many moons ago judging by some of the styles.. Apparently tastes do change!)
So, if like me you have some (??!!) very pretty gift tags you’re hoarding (I mean saving for a rainy day) that you don’t have matching paper for, then fear not….You can use them up and plain paper is your friend! Couple the tag with a bit of ribbon and some imagination (in other words hole punch a second hole in the tag, thread a length of ribbon through, secure on the back with double sided) and this is the result….A unique and pretty decorative touch to embellish a gift!

Hello to Spring and to everyone with a Spring Birthday! What a lovely time of year to have one …With days growing warmer and sunnier and flashes of colour starting to appear in the garden it truly is a beautiful time of year.
It’s also a time of year our Creative Spring Gift Wrapping demonstrations are in full swing and it’s such a pleasure to tour around the UK meeting different groups, teaching them lots of new gift wrapping skills and bringing the outside in with the beautiful spring feel gift wrap and ribbons we’ve sourced.
One of the wrapping papers we simply love and have been using for our personal
wrapping and in our demonstrations is this gorgeous ‘Bold Roses and Garden Ditsy’ double sided paper. Doesn’t it just shout springtime?!
And being a double sided wrapping paper too this means you can wrap with it ….
Or….(Should the urge take your fancy) you could get creative and make some pretty spring decorations to adorn your house or garden with instead. How lovely!
Looking for some inspiration for a spot of spring wrapping? Here’s some we did earlier that would be just perfect for those Spring Birthdays, Mothers Day or even Easter!
Pastel green paper with a white spot has a gorgeous clean and crisp feel about it and simply shouts ‘spring is here!’. To decorate, layer up a couple of cream ribbons and tie a simple bow or add a small spring flower (artificial or fresh as you prefer) for an easy to do but very stylish spring look!
