Shabby Wraps

Tomorrow is my friend Ella's birthday so today after Pilates 4 of us girls met up for coffee and a little celebration lunch ... 
Ella and I went shopping on Saturday and she picked her main present from me ... but I also had a few little chocolate surprises to give her as well these lovely Roses


... and I had fun wrapping her gifts ...


Like me - she loves chocolate covered marzipan ... and I put a few bars into this cute hanging basket ... this is the same template that I used for this weeks' challenge at CCCB from Creations By AR


This one I printed and cut from white CS and then covered in cream coloured crepe paper


... a little wooden heart covered in paper from Prima The Printery range ...


Strips of ribbons, twill, lace and burlap tied with twine and topped with a shabby flower made from some frayed fabric ... and a gorgeous rose centre ... The colours match her bedroom and I know it will just look so pretty hanging in there ...


... Praline chocolates wrapped in crepe paper and another bundle of shabby strips, a crocheted heart ... a flower from Wild Orchid Crafts ... tied up with natural raffia ...


... and to complete the set, a decorated envelope ... the card you have already seen Here
You know, I think I have converted her to shabby chic .... 

Have a lovely day ... I'll be back tomorrow for the  City Crafter Challenge ... I hope you can stop by

Till soon
