So this year has completely run away with me, leaving me standing in a cloud of dust wondering what happened. Good, bad, fun, scary, exciting, a ton of things keeping me away from my blogging world. Carrying on with the whirlwind I am leaving for Ireland tomorrow to spend a week with my mum and sisters. So all my plans for new Christmas wrap and DIY ideas, festive baking and more are all on hold until I return. Before I go though I thought it would be nice to share some pictures from the Christmas wrap shoot I put together for Heart Home Magazine last year.
For the first idea I made gift wrap using vintage cards and lace, gift tags from recycled card, lace and dried heather, tied on with jute, then neon bright masking tape to add a modern edge to all those angels and lace. To print your own paper you can download the PDF’s here.This look was a twist on traditional colours of red and gold, created using beautiful handmade papers from india, with moroccan tassels, simple string to tie and topped with paper flowers.
Finally my lovely Rose from Butlers wrapped her parcels with vintage fabrics and embellishments. All in a lovely shimmering silvery colour palette.
