I've had several people ask me if I really do all of the things I tell you about here. Although I don't always, most of the time I do. You've also asked for more details.`
Awhile back, I talked about creative gift wrapping. Shortly after that, I attended several baby showers in a row. I made a diaper cake for one and creatively-wrapped the others. What does that mean in real life? Do I need a bow? Where do I buy the supplies? What about the ribbon?
I keep a stock of baby blankets on hand. I try to stock up when they're on sale or clearance. I buy only real ribbon (not cheap gift ribbon) for the gifts. I either get it on clearance or buy it in bulk at Costco.
Here's one I recently gave:
Here's what the "bottom" of the gift looked like:
Just like in my other post, I used safety pins to hold the gift together. I prefer using diaper pins, but I'm out of them...and have yet to find any on sale or clearance.
So...yes. I do really do this in real life. Have you tried it yet? What other creative gift wrapping ideas do you have?
