Inspired by my last gift wrap post, the caterpillar, today I have butterflies for you. I wrapped up two baby shower presents for two sisters with this idea. Packaging supplies needed are listed below:
White patterned wrapping paper (the one I used was found at Paper Source)
Pastel colored cardstock
Wrap your boxed gift with the wrapping and secure with the double-sided tape. Wind a few layers of the glitter twine around the package, securing with a knot on the backside of the package. Next, cut out a pretty butterfly silhouette. Bend the wings up to give it a bigger 3D effect. Using the puff glue, dot along the edges of the butterfly wings. Once that dries, use the tacky glue to secure the butterfly onto the package, putting glue only on the body of the butterfly (not the wings!) And you’re done!

This card was custom created to thank the perfect husband. Juggling work, education, and family life can be rather tough, but when you have a supporting husband whose mission in life is to help your dreams come true, he whips out the frying pan to cook when needed and doesn’t forget about romancing either.

In all the hustle bustle of these past several months, I completely forgot to share this fun styled shoot that I got to be a part of. It went down this past January and I’m only sharing now? Oh well.
I got to provide little kraft boxes, gold washi tape, gold glitter string, and gold glitter clothespins for the shoot to make up the favors. If you’re inspired, head on over to my Shop to find those items to make your own!

Sail Away Paper-Layered Art Print | Caterpillar Paper-Layered Art Print
The promised art prints are finally here! I’m about two weeks late, but I guess it’s better late than never. We caught a really strong bug over here and after three weeks, my throat is still sore. I have no idea what it was, but I’m sooooo glad we’re finally mostly mended.
I’ve released four designs into the Shop, all focused on nurseries. Find them via the coordinating links below each image. Doing 3D paper layered cards was the whole reason I got into the paper industry and I’m happy to start making larger art prints. I’ve had many folks asking for them all these years and I finally decided it was time (maybe perhaps my little guy’s room needed some fun art too). I hope you love these as much as I do.

Baby shower gift wrap is just way too much fun to do. You can get as whimsical and childlike as you want and no one will bat an eye. One of my friends is going to be a mama really soon and for her baby shower, I gave her a caterpillar wrapped gift. Packaging supplies needed are listed below:
Small kraft box (or larger if you have a larger gift, of course)
White polka dotted kraft wrapping paper (the one I used is from Target)
Mint green washi tape
Green glitter string
Mint green cardstock
1/8″ hole punch
Sharp fine tip scissors
Wrap your boxed gift in the wrapping paper, using double-sided tape to secure the flaps. A gift always looks cleaner if you hide the tape, thus why double-sided tape is my favorite. Add the washi tape across the flaps just for decorative style. Wind the glitter string around the box several times, secure the two loose ends, and trim. Once that bit is done, cut out a fun silhouette of a caterpillar from your green cardstock. Use your hole punch to create two small holes in the center of the caterpillar. Guide the toothpick through those holes. Figure out a good placement for the caterpillar, mark where the toothpick would insert into the top of the wrapped gift, and use the fine tip scissors to poke a small hole in that place. Insert the fully assembled caterpillar and you’re done.
