Wrap Around A Cup - Gift Wrap

Happy Friday Everyone! I'm back today with another gift idea, part 2 of my gift set. :-) I showed you the little paper basket on Wednesday and that was part 1 (actually the whole set consists of 4 parts). This time I made a wrapper for a mug. I used the same colors as I did for my basket so everything will fit nicely together. The DP I used is from the new Basic Grey collection Origins. The image is colored with the same colors but instead of the Cupcake image I used another cutie from the new Sweet Things collection: Beary Big Hugs.

I thought making a wrapper is a nice idea and something different than putting the mug in a box and decorate the box or alter the box the mug was sold in. And let me tell you, it is pretty quick as well ;-).

I decorated the top with Prima flowers, rhinestones, half-pearls

and added a large bow and some smaller strands of ribbon.

The image was put on the front and I trimmed it as well with a matching little Prima flower, matching ribbon and rhinestones. And to have a connection to the decoration on the top I let the rhinestone swirls coming from the top, continue on the front.

I hope you like my mug wrapper as well. I'll show you the rest of the set next week.
For now have a wonderful weekend and thanks for stopping by here today!

  10. Hi Iris,
    I did indeed like you basket. It reminded me that I had made those before and should think about making those for a class in March, with my blown out and stamped eggs! This is so cool but you must be so careful working on the delicate eggs. Getting off track. Absolutely love your mub wrap. I cannot wait to see what the other 2 items in your wrapping set are, very Lovely work.

    Summer you have a fabulous DT and I love cheking out your blog each day as I sip my morning tea. You are 1 of the 7 blogs I view each morning. I had to limit my viewing so I can get my day started and get my own designing completed, etc. Thank you being such a awesome site and store.


  11. This is a fabulous idea and beautifully executed. I am loving the colours you have used and all of those flowers and the ribbon. The image you have chosen is perfect too! Brilliant! Warmest wishes, Lesley
