{holiday inspiration : gift wrapping with ribbon & rhinestones}

. . . every year, love to come up with a new wrapping scheme for everyone's gifts, and a favourite was heavy kraft paper with wide lengths of snowy white grosgrain ribbon, and tiny pine cones & evergreen branches fastened around the bow; this year, quite taken with the idea of pretty white boxes tied at the corners with lengths of satin ribbon, pretty pleats of white and lavender tissue adorned with vintage rhinestone buckles and pins . . .
