Wedding Burlap Gift Wrap

Another weekend, another Shower! This weekend it was a Bridal Shower.  I am one of those people who enjoy going to Showers,  they are happy occassions!  This bride to be is an eco loving science teacher, so I thought she would enjoy a more natural wrapping for her gift.
I used kraft paper made out of recycled materials, burlap, a doily and some reclaimed ribbon.

I added a simple brown tag and embellished it with a beautiful cluny lace heart that I found in a box of old ribbon my mother gave me.  My mother used to sew a lot and has passed a lot of her boxes of "treasurers" on to me now that she has retired her needle and thread.  

Oh, by the way - this bride recieved the most adorable Kate Spade china at her shower!! I believe there was some envy involved!   Don't you think that after 28 years or so of marriage we should all have another shower?

I have linked up to the party at Thursdays are Your Days at 52 Mantels

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.
