What is the Lovely Package Exchange? In short, participants are matched with another blogger, are given a few key details about one another, shop for a small gift (or gifts) for the other person and then create a LOVELY PACKAGE to mail.
I was matched with Sherry in Ontario, and I have to say I am really please with how my gift wrapping turned out! Would you like to see? Of course you would!
I started with several little gifts. Sherry likes the colour RED, so I tried to keep that as a theme in my packaging. I wrapped one gift in white tissue paper tied with red string, and then stamped the paper with small red snowflakes. I wrapped two of the packages in brown paper, embellished with japanese washi tape (one of my new favourite wrapping items!) and added little details, like pussy willows and a sweet little hand-stamped tag.
I purchased a plain wooden box to keep everything together, and attached a handmade card to the inside of the box lid (also with washi tape!)
Once packaged, I wrapped everything in brown paper for mailing, and then stamped the outside of the package with more red snowflakes!
I was really enjoyable to take part in this exchange! I hope Sherry LOVES her lovely package, and I can't wait to see what she sent me!
Little surprises bring so much joy.
