Regular visitors to my blog will know that I also enjoy paper crafts and am particularly partial to a co-ordinated gift set. I've had the idea for this in my head for a while now and had the perfect opportunity to make it reality this week as it's my lovely sisters birthday.
The inspiration for this piece was the wonderful Orla Kiely. I managed to catch a flavour of what she is all about. I love the way she uses simple shapes and colour choices.
Here is the card......
.......and here's the box. It contains store vouchers and I think it's a really nice way of presenting them.
........ and together.
I love to personalise cards and gifts in this way, it almost makes them part of the gift itself and is always so well received. I know when I exchange gifts with my girlfriends, there are always just as many oooohh's and ahhhhh's about the actual packaging as there are about the gifts themselves.
Now my sewing machine is calling, he's been sadly neglected for a couple of days and is in need of urgent attention.
Have a good day.
