Hello, I'm a new person Smiley
I've been lurking around spying on people's creations like some kind of craft-pervert for about a year though!

I wrapped this up for a friend for christmas.  It has a post secret book & a little box of after eight mints in it. The buttons are left over from another project , the crocheted wool was lying around my bag of knitting stuff and my boyfriend's a bit of a scrooge so didn't let us get christmassy paper!

If i'd planned on showing the pic to anyone i'd have made that corner much neater, the stickyoutness of it annoys me whenever i look at it. Ah well!

I think making your own wrapping paper is better; more creative and fun. I didn't use wrapping paper@Christmas, I used either plastic bags with ribbon, or wrapped it in fabric with ribbon, yarn or string. Your wrap job is pretty good minus the corner,  Roll Eyes I like the buttons on the smaller one and the homemade chain ribbon you made.

One moment can change everything!

Live your life to the fullest every day!

Let your past remain behind you as you look forward to the future!

I really like this. It's simple and lovely--it looks like it belongs in a magazine.

i think this is really pretty!

Since my girls actually nap (knock on wood), I am going to start trying to work off my negative feedback.  Life got hectic with their early arrival.  I apologize for the inconveniences my flaking caused.

I love the use of the buttons and crocheted wool to hold it/ decorate it. The button colours look especially good against the paper.
