With summer being in full swing and warm vibes filling the air, I thought I’d show you a cool summer gift wrap idea you are going to want to try yourself.

The gorgeous tropical collection from Fancy Pants Designs Hello Sunshine, was the perfect way to make a special friend feel completely spoilt on her birthday. The fresh patterns & funky ephemera took her gift from ordinary, to AMAZING!!

The beauty of this box, is that it was made using a single piece of patterned paper & a scoreboard. Don’t the pink stripes look fabulous?!! The ombre pink colors color scheme really offsets the graphic black & white leaf design.

Tell me if you agree..that a gift doesn’t look finished unless it is topped with a lovely big flower? So I hand made one. A big, bold & beautiful flower cut from layers of the Hello Sunshine 6×6 paper pad. Attached with a paper ‘ribbon’ which also holds the box closed…it adds gorgeous flashes of color & makes a bold & dimensional statement.

And last but certainly not least, I added a decorative tag. The Hello Sunshine tag pack comes with a selection of cute tag designs, I selected the ‘You were born to stand out’ tag complete with quirky flamingo (my fave at the moment), added a few flower & leaf ephemera clustered together & then raised with foam adhesive for height.
The result is totally…’WOW’ and I have to say, it was a complete showstopper at the party! The birthday girl’s reaction was totally worth the effort.
Thanks for stopping by. Have yourself a super crafty day further!
