asking for trouble

Gift Wrap is here!

At last, at last, I have all the pieces and my new wrapping paper and gift wrap sets are in the shop!

As you can see, I got two designs printed – Vintage Buttons and Cakeify & Friends. It was really really hard choosing just two designs but I hope these will cover most of your gifting needs.

The gift sets are pretty cool for keeping aside for last minute gifts – they’ve got everything you need for the perfect present – 2 sheets of gift wrap plus 2 tags and 2 matching stickers. You can also buy single sheets either folded or rolled up in a tube. And, you can even get me to wrap your gifts for you – both papers are available in my gift wrapping service.

Phew! Since I’ve made you wait so long, all orders over £10 before May 1st will get  a free folded sheet of gift wrap – you can state your preferred pattern at checkout or leave it as a surprise.

I’ll also have gift wrap sets at my next craft fair in a couple of weeks, which is at the Benmore Botanic Gardens in Dunoon! As you probably know, I LOVE Botanic Gardens and have visited a whole load of them around the globe. So I’m mostly just happy to go visit a new one, plus I hear there will be a cake stall. More details on my Events page.
