This weekend, I attended a lovely wedding shower. My shower gift was two large bath towels and that meant a very large box to be wrapped.
I shopped late Friday night and didn’t pick up any wrap. So Saturday morning, I began to look around my house for wrapping items. Tissue paper? Only white in the large sheet size. Wrapping paper? Some, but not quite what I was looking for this day.
Luckily, I happened to have some striped, lavender, clear acetate sheets that my former neighbor had given me before she moved out of the country. I had several pieces of colored tulle from the flea market, so a lavender piece was wrapped around the box. But what to do with the ends? Always save those small pieces of ribbon! Two lavender pieces fixed that, then the tulle was pulled to the middle and splayed into a circle. A quick flower pin from my flea market supplies and ta da! I was worried it was going to look like a rag tag present before I finished but happily it all came together.
A little card and it was done. Whew, that was a close call!
