The Gifted Blog

From The Gifted Blog Flickr Pool

I wanted to highlight some additions to The Gifted Blog Flickr pool, the space for readers to show off their gift wrapping! First, this beautiful necklace and butterfly box by silverkeys. Yes, she made both the necklace and the box! You can read more about it and many other gifts here on her lovely blog.

Here is one from my sister. She wrapped Japanese cherry blossom candies in a clear bag, with tiny paper cut-outs adorning the ribbon on top. Cute! When I asked, she said she cut the little cherry blossoms out while watching TV.

Have a gift you're proud of wrapping? Snap a photo and submit it today! For those of you who aren't Flickr-savvy, e-mail the photo to me at giftedmailbox[at] I would love to see it!

To add your images or simply see more, find all the photos in The Gifted Blog Flickr pool here!

  1. Wow! Thank you so much for the feature! Haven't had time to blog since I moved and started my new job, but I hope to be back soon. :)

    In the meantime, I'll keep on reading and enjoying your lovely posts.

  2. Thanks for encouraging us to send pictures of a Gifted work!!! I just sent cookies to my Father, Father-in-law and two friends who are teachers as a backed to school gift. I used several of the techniques from this blog, and knew that I should have taken a picture!

    I reused clear plastic nut containers and wrote little messages on them for our Dads. I wrapped the container with ribbons and used two of my toppers from the Gifted workshop on top. I also glued on the free "with love and ice cream" tags. :) Overall, they've been a big hit and it was a great way to get creative while sending something that might otherwise seem mundane. Thanks for all the great ideas!!! Next time, I'll take a picture!

  3. Love the box, love the necklace, and that aqua blue is pretty jazzy as well. Someone has a lot of talent.
