Wrapping it Pretty

The end of the school year will be here sooner than you know it and with that comes celebrations and a time to say thank you to my two little girls’ teachers.  Both of my children have multiple teachers and since I am not spending a large amount of money on them, I do like to wrap their gifts up in pretty papers, ribbons and all things lovely.  I filled each bag with a note pad that I ordered with their name, salt water taffy from Trader Joe’s and a little gift card.  The textures from the ribbons and twine really make these stand out and I really love winding that fabulous twine.  Be generous with that roll of twine, I think it is such  a fun look.  For a little touch of whimsy, add some mini clothespins, that will really complete the look.  Thanks for stopping by today!

    Cute, I use to do this for my sons teachers.  My son got out of school 2 weeks ago.  No snow days to make up.  He was happy.
