Baby Shower Gift Wrap

Twins!  We are all so excited for some friends of ours who have endured some special circumstances to find out they are expecting twin girls this summer.  I wanted to do some special wrapping for the few gifts I had for their Baby Shower.  Using my Cricut, my basket full of ribbon and lace remants, buttons and some paper doilies I was able to put a nice looking baby gift basket together.

Because I had all of these items in my stash of craftdom, this cost me less than going out and buying some ribbon and bows! I used the Cricut Flower Shoppe cartridge for all three of the packages with flowers.

For the odd shapped gift - I used a bigger doily to cover the unattractive folding job and added a bow and a twins tag - hoping that mom might want to use it in a scrapbook in the future

I like to use Easter grass in the gift baskets for filler.  I always take advantage of those after Easter sales when the Easter grass is marked down to twenty cents a bag!
So I sealed up my card and was ready to go congratulate the parents to be!

I have joined the Pretty Packages Party at the The Blackberry Vine .

In the past few years my interests have grown from fabric to paper and now to dishes too! I just love prints, polkadots, plaids and paisleys- hence the blog name.
