The Blackberry Vine is having a second Pretty Packages Party.
If you know me you know I probably need a gift wrap intervention
so this is my kind of party.
I had a gift to wrap for a friend.
Her daughter is expecting their first baby any day now.
She is one of my first friends to become a grandmother.
Funny, she doesn't look or act like a grandmother.
So when I saw this in a gift shop I thought of her.
The phrase seemed just right for my cute friend.
When I wrap a gift I like the wrap to be a hint to what's inside.
So I wrapped this one in black and white paper,
added a photo of a glamorous woman ( Sophia Loren),
used some pop dots to give the picture dimension,
selected a piece of colorful scrapbook paper and cut out a pair of stylish readers.
Then I embellished the readers with rhinestones.
I made a name tag for the package that says Mimi - the name she has selected for herself as a grandma.
Voila, my interpretation of glamorous gift wrap for my friend the fabulous Mimi
Congrats Mimi. Little Schu is going to love coming to your house.
