Hello dear readers! Thanks a lot for your lovely feedback and constructive criticism concerning my new blog layout, I appreciate this a lot! :)
This post is dedicated to the birthday present I made for my best friend Anja two weeks ago: I wanted to give her several different presents, mostly for her kitchen, plus a handmade voucher for a picnic in summer. Thus, I wanted to pack the presents in a way that the packaging is related to the present itself - the picnic - and fits into her home and can be used like all the other presents for her kitchen.
Because I nowhere found a white basket with handles, I bought one which I had to paint. Thanks to my last cooperations, I still had lots of white edding spray paint left which they once sent me for review and projects and this time, I used this paint to turn the basket white.
At first, I spray painted the inside, then the outside of the basket.
I used wooden skewers, yarn and masking tape to make a bunting and hang it above the basket for a real spring feeling. :)
For the voucher I drew a picnic basket and wrote the text on its back and added some picnic-related illustrations.
Being filled with colorful presents, the basket looked even prettier. :)
Apart from the quality time voucher, Anja got a turquoise teapot by Nordal, a rice dk cup in yellow, white pudding ramekins, organic tea, paper straws via DaWanda and organic flowers seeds. :)
How much I love preparing presents and I even love it more when putting together and wrapping a present after a certain concept like this time with the picnic theme. :)
