Back in the day (meaning: before children) I used to make the gift packaging for our nieces and nephews birthdays. I really enjoyed it, but over the years it became “easier” to purchase the wrapping paper that will ultimately be ripped apart in seconds and thrown away moments later. Let’s be honest, I was doing it more for me than for them because I really enjoyed doing it. I like being crafty.
That said, I think the unicorns have inspired me because I really felt like making a unicorn gift bag to go along with our present for our nieces birthday this weekend (remember how I mentioned last week that I went way overboard on the whole unicorn theme?) So that’s what I set out to do.
Fast forward to present day. I had this vision in my head of a white gift bag for the unicorn but I needed one large enough to fit the gift — in other words the small favor bags wouldn’t work. Do you know how difficult it is to find one single large-size white gift bag? Not a pack of 5, not one with polka dots or stripes. Just a single, plain, LARGE, white gift bag. Heck I would have settled for medium. I went to 5 stores and could not find a single one.
Had to switch up my game plan.
I rummaged through my craft desk and closets and found a roll of this pretty Tiffany blue wrapping paper, which I was iffy about because I really had my vision of this white unicorn. I think it turned out pretty spectacular if I do say so myself, what do you think?
