Pretty Presents

I love making presents look just as yummy on the outside as the hidden surprise on the inside.  I made these pretty presents by taking a simple kraft paper jewelry box and gluing a vintage white paper doily on the lid with a glue stick.  While those were drying I made name tags out of paper clay, tied them up with a pretty blue-grey seam binding ribbon and attached the tags with jump rings.  I adore how these turned out, I love the tags, I think these may become a theme on my presents!

The one with the Mother tag was for my mom for Mother's Day and as promised from my last post here are pictures of her present.

She loves birds so I made her a pendant with a bird them.

In the next few days I will be posting pictures of the hidden treasures in the boxes for Stephanie and Corrine.
