I love wrapping tiny little packages and making them look pretty. Even more so, I love reusing found objects and giving them a new purpose. I always feel sad seeing tiny little seashells in the thrift stores, the multitude of little lives that were taken out of the sea, just to be discarded.
I was inspired by a package I recently received from the darling Etsy shop, Red or Gray Art. She makes the most lovely, meditative wabi sabi stones, among mobiles and other paper and fabric art.
I found a pretty bracelett at the thrift store, took it apart and reused the stones and shells. On Chinese Rice paper, I printed a simple "thank you", tore the little pieces, used two layers of mod podge, and voila! A simple little embellishment to pretty up any little package. In the last two pictures, I simply wrapped a small bar of soap in thrifted linen, then tied with bakers twine.
Hoping you all have time to make something pretty this weekend!
