Bows and ribbons can really make a package pop. It's like the icing on a cake. They make something good...gooder. Hah.
So I confess. At my house, you very rarely find bows and ribbons on the Christmas gifts. At least not on the ones I wrap. I have no talent for "making it pretty". I'm a functional kind of girl. It's wrapped so you can't see what inside. Then you are just going to rip it up...so why all the fuss? I think maybe that's on the perfection gene strand...which I am lacking in.
Anyhow....I do love the way it looks. But it never looks that way when I do it so I give up. Instead I'll just enjoy myself some pretty pictures. Or you can send me a gift with a pretty bow. Cheers!
So glad the Rat is not a girl...the teen would be all about Christmas dresses for it.
Sara? Are you reading this? I want one of these cakes please.
And the prize for most unique use of Christmas ribbon goes to.......
