rope and ribbon

I have multiple celebrations coming up in the next month and I found these bright lovelies while searching for wrapping paper inspiration. The colorful ropes would look splendid atop simple craft paper, and the vintage ribbons make such a pretty design statement against a springtime gray.

PS. A huge hello to my SITS girls stopping by today. I’d love to hear what are you wrapping presents for this spring.

    I wish I were more crafty but alas, I was not given the craft gene. Instead I pay people to make them for me ;)

    i love using something a little higher quality to wrap presents. You don’t necessarily have to spend more money – these ribbons would look great over newspaper or brown paper bag remnants!

    Congratulations on your special SITS day.

    Your blog is beautiful and it’s obvious that you do great work.

    As for me, I’m hoping I won’t be wrapping anything really soon. I am SO not a party planner. I’d rather go to the dentist than plan a party. Guess that’s why we need people like you.

    I hope it’s a great day for you.
