We’ve been invited to a baby’s baptism, this morning. Yesterday I purchased a gift and when the clerk offered to gift wrap it, I said, “that would be great!”
It was pretty ugly. She put it in a gift bag that was much too small and stuffed four small yellow and green tissues on the top then tied it with some pretty nondescript ribbon.
This morning I searched for wrapping paper but couldn’t find anything appropriate. I did find a slightly wrinkled white paper bag. And I spied two books of alphabet stickers in the box of crafty stuff that I keep on hand for the grandkids.
I pressed the bag with my iron to remove most of the wrinkles and decided to decorate it with the baby’s name…Hudson.
It turned out quite nice, if I do say so myself.
These were my supplies…a plain white bag, a couple of sticker books and a roll of red ribbon.
I used the blue and white ribbon from the original gift wrap plus some red curling ribbon to tie the handles of the finished gift bag.
Then I stuck the letters H – U – D – S – O – N at random spots on the white tissue paper.
