Crafty Ideas for Friday

I just love pretty ribbons, like lollies in a jar, not sure which one is my favourite!

Heres a great idea to wrap a parcel. Iv used unbleached calico at $4.95 for 1metre x 80cm, and tied with some pretty grossgrain ribbons. Then in a nice pen your greeting can be written straight onto the fabric. Its quite personalised and takes no longer than with paper ~ only that the fabric is stronger, and doest tear. I think weve all been there ~ have you ever tried wrapping a surf board with paper!!!
Another great thing with this fabric, littlies can paint on it or make hand impressions and then once dried used as colourful wrap, the gliltter and glue can come out too. My two lovelies have a ball when we get going with this ~ give it a go it puts the fun back into wrapping.
