It's been a very long time since I last posted - so much going on that I have just lost track of my wrappings! Hopefully there will be some news of new ventures very soon. In the mean time, see below for some recent wraps
BABY SHOWER GIFT
BABY SHOWER GIFT
Simple wrapping can be just as interesting to me as something quite elaborate
My obsession this year was brown paper & bronze leaf for Christmas wrapping but I was thwarted by my own planning. Being unable to find bronze leaf close to me, the shipping on what I could find would push my preparations so I changed tack.
Buttons & stencils have formed the basis of my wrapping this year. Brown paper, bright twine and buttons look simple and pretty
BUTTONS & TWINE
I also added some silver jingle bells to tags to add that Christmassy feel
A few years ago I stumbled across a shop called Tiger in Glasgow and I couldn't believe the store wasn't everywhere. I have been to about 8 shops now around Europe and each time I come away with a hoard of cool little items.
The great thing is each store is slightly different in its stock so you are always finding something new on each visit.
The press have recently been profiling the stores and building the profile as a brand on the High Street. Google 'Tiger Stores' in the news section and you can read a number of articles about the store.
If you are lucky enough to live near one - go, visit, shop and find out how much of a bargain it is!!
Below is just a small range of items purchased on my last visit to the Cardiff store. I have so many plans for the items so look out for some new postings soon
Included in this selection:
Blank jigsaw puzzles
Moustache cake pegs
Satchel gift bag
Cool cocktail sticks
