Today while baking cookies for my new physical therapist, I wanted to make them look good……then maybe they wouldn’t think I was such a flake for missing and forgetting my last 2 appts. I knew I had some kraft boxes left over from Christmas and I have a ton of ribbon…….done. They looked good……hopefully they tasted good…….but most importantly…….hopefully I redeemed myself.
But all that reminded me of this blog that Cindy sent me a while ago…….If you’re looking for ideas for gift giving or ways to wrap a gift………because you know it’s all in the presentation.
Givers Log…..you’ll love it!These framed beauties look so cute on a wrapped gift……however I think that would have been a bit over the top had I given the PT a box of cookies with a photo of me on it. :) Especially since that was the first time I had met them. But for other gifts………..this is a perfect idea.
Now maybe I could have really went for it and made my own tiered plate trays. Do you think they would have thought I was like Martha, or just really odd?I love these. They don’t look too terribly difficult to make. Love the rose knob pull they used. She shows a full tutorial on her blog. While you have your tools out………..look at this ribbon holder. I’ve seen a lot of ribbon holders in my day, but this is a first for this. She shows you everything you need to know. She also has a few ideas for party favors, or teacher gifts. I love these little wood sharpeners she added a monogram too. All you need is a bit of mod podge. And this idea…..great for all those germ infested elementary schools. Fighting germs doesn’t have to be ugly.I’m a day late and a dollar short on this idea……..it would have been perfect for Earth Day! This is also perfect for any gardener, teacher, etc….
Rolls of seed tape. If you need a bit more information, no worries. She’s got a full tutorial on her site.Looks easy enough, yea?I have never seen a cake that has writing on it…….like this one anyway. This is really what I should have made the physical therapist…..only going on about how sorry I was and how I just don’t miss appts and waste people’s time…..That would have been cool…..but probably over the top too.Or had I had more time, I could have used a plate that I sprayed chalk board paint on….then written my message…….
This blog will really come in handy for all times of the year. Always nice to grab a new idea when you’re trying to impress someone. :)
Have a great weekend.
