:wrap: yellow & white

Yellow and white is my all-time favourite colour combination, so I was excited when I saw my friend Jo had chosen this as the colour theme for her baby shower last weekend. It gave me the perfect excuse to go yellow-and-white crazy with the gift-wrapping on her present!

I started by measuring out a piece of good-quality white paper just the right size to wrap my gift of a Once-a-Year Book. As I was going for a cute, baby-themed look, I used a little Rilakkuma stamp I bought in Japan, but one of Kia Hing Fay’s cute stamps would work just as well. I used VersaCraft ink in lemon yellow and stamped all over the sheet in a random pattern. Once you’ve used this ink you’ll never go back – it is so lovely to use and comes in such fantastic colours…plus you can also use it on fabric and wood so the possibilities are endless!

Once the ink had dried, I wrapped up the present and finished it off by tying around a length of yellow and white twine.

I made a matching card by stamping the little bear once again on a blank piece of white card, and I used one of Kia Hing Fay’s “hello” stamps on the envelope.

A cute present for a super-cute baby shower!

  1. It was beautiful and very hard to unwrap as it was so pretty! I hate damaging wrapping! Attention to the theme was noted and appreciated and the Once a Year book is awesome!!
