This week I was on the hunt for Collin's niece's first birthday. Thanks to Home Goods I bought this extremely cute wrapping paper by Cynthia Rowley. And the price for this super adorbs wrapping paper? $2.99! I fell in love. My second favorite store, Hobby Lobby, provided the rest of the supplies. I bought a 3D cardboard felt "E" and a package of fabric rose ribbon. Total cost = $6.00.
When you go hunting for your supply items, try to get personal items. I know Baby E is only turning one, and she probable won't think much of my wrapping, but it makes it all just too cute! Her middle name is Rose- which is why I chose the rose petal ribbon. Her birthday theme is Minnie Mouse and for some reason the pink and white polka dot paper reminded me of that cute little Disney character :)
After wrapping Baby E's gift, I centered the "E" on the gift and attached it to the gift with double-sided circle scrapbook adhesives that I already had. Hot glue or double-sided tape would do the job just as well. Just be careful if you use hot glue because you don't want it to seep through the package from the heat. I cut two rose petals off the rose ribbon and stuck those on with the adhesives, as well. Now, you have successfully transformed a plain wrapping gift into something that looks just oh-so-beautiful!
Happy 1st birthday Baby Turner!!!
