Happy Friday!...and a birthday package
Posted by Anna Macoboy
Happy Friday! Is it just me or has the smell of spring been in the air lately? With the warmer weather we've been having, and all the almond and cherry blossoms bursting out, I've been smelling it everywhere...and I get a little thrill every time I do!
I picked these freesias this morning and they smell exactly like spring to me. I love just keeping a few nearby and every now and then catching a whiff of that amazing scent. I've been trying to take as many walks through the neighbourhood as I can lately, to take in all the spring blossoms, and the freesias growing by the roadside - I just love it.
Fridays make me think of celebrations, and celebrations make me think of birthdays...which I why I thought I'd share with you this birthday package I made recently for a friend. I love a matching present and card combo! For this one, I wrapped the present in kraft paper and prettied it up with some of these fantastic dot stickers, then tied it up with plenty of string. To make the card, I decorated the back of a mini kraft envelope (from MUJI) with the same stickers, then glued it down to a plain white card. Inside the envelope I put a little hot pink card with the message "happy birthday!". And then of course inside the card I wrote a personal message. You can't beat an interactive card!
Here's to a lovely weekend filled with fun celebrations!
