It's my friends birthday this week and I've made her a present
which, as she hasn't opened it yet, I will have to wait for another day.
The problem was as she was coming over for coffee I had to wrap it quickly.
and I had no wrapping paper or even
brown paper left after Christmas and no time to buy any.
What I have got is loads of old french magazines so decided to
use one of these to
make a paper bag, which l really liked the look of.
Now I just needed a label to complete the look.
So I raided my drawers and found
some luggage labels which was a bit boring and didn't quite
go with the look.
Back to the magazine and pick a picture.
Pick a luggage label and take off the string.
Stick it to the back of the magazine and smooth down
so no creases or bubbles
Cut it out with a sharp craft knife and
re -attach the string
and voila--as the french say.
I got a bit carried away.
But my friend was thrilled with her present, lets hope she likes the
contents as much.
Enjoy your day, I'm off to Lowestoft for Sunday lunch.
See you soon.
