Happy Sunshiny Packages

This week I have been working on a few little odds and ends to put in a celebratory package for the lovely Christie. Her fave colours are orange and yellow - so I tried to work with that as much as I could.

Some little gift tags. These were made with vintage wallpaper, card and paper stock from my stash (the little blue background papers were gifted to me by Rockmellon), and re-purposed ribbons - so they are a little bit eco-friendly.

One of my signature cupcake keyrings. I started making these as baby shower favours for my SIL two and a half years ago, and have had a few requests for them over time. I have often wondered if anyone would actually buy them, but I've never tried to find out. What do you think?

A piece of my FAVOURITE vintage fabric in my stash.

And lastly, the wrapping "paper" a scarfette from Just Wonder - a little local boutique. I added the white ribbon (purchased on my last holiday in Queensland), and a little of my new ruler ribbon from Kikki K for an extra touch.

Hope you all have a sunshiny day and wonderful weekend!

    Thanks for visiting my blog. You're right, stop putting it off and make yourself a buttercup bag!!! The pattern is easy to follow and the result is great. I am so glad that I bought plenty of fabric and will be able to make another 2 if not 3 (YAY!)

  5. I adore your tag...I've never seen them done quite this way. I'm going to need to borrow that idea. Thanks.
