We have been a bit busy with birthdays around here, and I thought I'd share some of the pretty Birthday packaging and wishes that I've had.
This is my gift to Alysa. It was actually several gifts, all with a monogram theme, so I had to wrap them in a monogram theme as well. I simply wrapped the gifts in striped paper, tied it together with a black ribbon, tucked in some black ladies gloves instead of a bow, then for her initials, AHW, I used an A ornament I found for a buck at Michaels, an H embroidered old hankie I found at a garage sale, and a W stocking pin I got on clearance after Christmas.
Here is a great card that my mom made for my husband for his birthday. It looks like a present tied with a tag.
But instead of opening it like a regular card, you pull up on the lid to reveal the message inside. Pretty clever!
My birthday was Thursday, and my mom made this absolutely darling card for me using her Cricut machine and bejeweled it with tiny teardrop gems. I LOVE it!
My dear friend Diana, who also does SU, sent me this pretty card with die cut butterflies and pearls. It just put a little more "happy" into my "happy birthday"!
(Now that all the birthday madness is over and kids are out of school, I hope to be getting back to this blog a bit more. Thanks for sticking in there with us.)
