Eighty reasons to smile

Today 14 September we continue our theme of spring time and birthdays with special wishes and wraps for our wonderful aunt who turns 80. Happy birthday Aunty Fay… Have a glorious day and for you a wrap of dusty pinks offset with a pretty little bow. This gift was an irregular shape with rounded corners and so I had to work hard at positioning the gift so that the pattern was shown in its best light and the ends folded neatly. The ribbon is again positioned so not as to distract from the pattern. This wrap reminded me that while larger patterns are visually strong you have to be careful that the size and shape of the item you are wrapping will do the pattern justice. I think it does here.
