My granddaughter Abby and I picked up some jewelry for her mother at a local craft fair this past weekend. The pieces were made from vintage bits and were beautiful BUT the vendor just tossed the necklace and ring in a paper bag......no tissue paper or nothing! That didn't feel very special. And we could hardly just hand over the bag to my daughter and say "here's your gift."
So Abby and I went into the craft closet and started crafting! We took a page from an old book and glued it to some cardstock. We inked the edges and punch holes for the necklace to drape from. We cut a slot for the ring to slide into. Doesn't it look impressive? We thought so.
Next we attacked the paper bag. More book pages, some craft paper ran through the crimper, a vintage bird image and more ink and we were done. Much nicer and now the presentation looks as good as the jewelry!
