For my niece's birthday, I wrapped this one by 'sewing' the edges of the package shut with vintage seam binding, as well at at the closure at the top. I had previously color copied some fun vintage images onto sticker paper to have on hand for quick decorating. I chose the images I wanted, cut them out with decorative edged scissors and did a quick peel and stick. I added a vintage anagram letter for her initial and tied on a vintage key. Lastly, using a vintage postal stamp that says "special delivery" I stamped the wrapping. Something special for a special girl.
We recently hosted a craft night for some friends from church. Teens did one project together in the dining room while moms gathered in the studio for something different. I wanted the guests to feel special, so special invites were in order. I fashioned the envelopes from vintage sheet music and ephemera with typed names attached. Inside, a large packing tag tied with seam binding listed the invitation information. I am planning on using the same format to make gift card holders for holiday gifts. I'll be sure to show you a few when they are done. In the meantime, happy crafting to you.
