I got to wrap two gifts this past weekend and make them cute and personal. The first one was for a bridal shower. I wasn't actually able to go to the shower, so I wanted to make sure the gift was extra cute. I like wrapping and bagging gifts in plain brown paper, and then using other things to dress them up and make them personal, and for this gift I chose a wooden letter Z, for their last name. The shower colors were going to be gray and coral, so I decided to paint the Z coral. After it had dried, I drilled a little hole in the corner, this was to thread twine through, to tie it onto the gift.

So my plain brown paper-wrapped box went from this:
This gift I "wrapped" by just putting it in a gift bag. I dressed it up with a bow on handle, and I know the ribbon looks like the kind you used to get at Aerie, but it's not it, I actually got it at at antique store several years ago! Then I scrounged around in my craft basket and found these little wooden circles with letters on them, and stuck a J on the bag for my friend Jamie. Super cute, I think!
