Glittery Wings Fluttering by

My mom always said that the presentation of a gift  was as important as the gift it's self. I  still follow this message, whether I am wrapping gifts or entertaining. I spend extra time designing the look and feel of my wrappings and special meals. I think a great presentation is like giving an extra little gift.

So for todays post, it's all about my gift tag of a family of butterflies. I used Tim Holtz Craft Resist Paper Stash paper as my starting point. After fussy cutting out all the butterflies, I added rhinestone bling flourishes, and lots of Stickles. All of these products can be found at the amazing Flying Unicorn Store. I then used an old broken pearl necklace between this family of butterflies to connect them. A sheer black ribbon ties it on to a gift box.

Hope some one will present you with a pretty present this week.
yours truly, gerri

  9. That Kraft resist paper is perfect for the butterfly designs. I like how you embellished them as well. I totally agree with a nicely wrapped gift. When I married my hubby he told me I was the first one he bought a gift bag for. All his other gifts were always given in a brown grocery sack! No joke. LOL

  10. So pretty Gerri- and so patient you are cutting out all those butterflies :-) Debi x

I may not always have the inclenation to do it these days, but I agree with you in every way. Absolutely gorgeous .. very special indeed. xxDonna

  12. Oh My! And this would be present enough!

  13. Fabulous, these butterflies are outstanding.

  14. Dear Gerri
    I can just imagine them fluttering as they are attached to a gift.
    A very beautiful idea.
