A visit to Shabby Sheilas had me leaving the store with a box full of pretty decorations..........
Birthdays are such special occassions to show that somebody special how much you care. When it comes to wrapping your carefully thought out gift, I think it's just as important to wrap the gift with just as much thought. A box of pretty ribbons and tags and pretty wrapping paper tucked away in a box for such occassions is a great idea. Shabby Sheilas always keep a beautiful range of gift cards and oh so special little bits and pieces to trim your gifts.
Look at what I found today when I paid a visit to their beautiful store.........I particulary loved the 'Congratulations' flag, so gorgeous and I love the scalloped edge around the border.
Imagine a pretty pot of pansies wrapped in colourful tissue paper with the flag poking out of the pot. Very cute !
or maybe you would prefer a gift wrapped in newspaper with a huge white silk ribbon around it with the white linen 'Congratulations' tag hanging from it.
Think outside the square. Brown paper or newspaper or even pages from vintage magazines are a great way to wrap a gift and a whole lot cheaper than an expensive roll of gift wrap.
