Pretty Gift Wrap For Mother's Day

What is a mom but the sunshine of our days 
and the north star of our nights.
~ Robert Brault ~


My mother loves lace and that is putting it mildly :)
She has bride dolls in lace dresses in her home,
she has lace on her stone mantel in her bedroom, lace in her bathroom,
lace on the shelves in cupboards, and lace doilies everywhere!
Lace, lace, lace :)

So what better way to wrap her gifts than in lace.


I used a brown box for a nice simplistic look.


The flower was made from some scrap lace.
To make one just use needle and thread and sew a gathering stitch along the top edge of the lace
then sew the ends together to form a gathered circle.


The beads in the middle are glass beads.
Put a little dab of fabric glue in the middle of the lace flower
and then put some beads on the glue.
Let dry for 24 hours.


The smaller package was wrapped in scrapbook paper
and the grey fabric is from a t-shirt.


I made the grey and lace fabric into yo yo flowers
and put some glass beads in the center.



Then I decorated a brown bag with some lace and pink rhinestones.





The tie which links mother and child is of such pure and immaculate strength 
as to never be violated.

Have a beautiful day!

I wish I had thought of this when my mother was alive. She loved lace. She was such a girly girl. Your mother will be over the moon with the wrapping before she even gets to the gift. :)

Oh Stephanie! What gorgeous, gorgeous wrapping!! I shall not want to open it. I believe what I will do is re-wrap them and place them in and around my brides, after all, brides revieve gifts right?

I guess I just had a sneak peak! I have something to tkink on as I await Mother's Day.

I have two beautiful daughters that I, as a Mother can praise. Both as different as night and day, but oh so beautiful in their own unique way.

Thank you for the love you show me, my heart over-flowes with gladness.

As I write this your beautiful music is playing "you alone are my hearts desire, and I long to worship you." My heart could not be fuller, with praise and worship for my precious Savior, and His goodness to me as His child. I love you Jesus!

Happy Mother's Day to you too my dear! I love you.

These are pretty, the lace works so well with the simple brown paper (I love brown paper for wrapping presents!) I will definitely have to try dressing my gifts up with lace in the future. :o) xx
