Signed, Sealed, Delivered | Wrap Story

I'm happy to say these gifts have been SENT! Posted to the East coast for our 3 year old niece and 1 year old nephew.

Genius gift idea stolen from our neighbors: key rings with real keys! We bought the keychains in Thailand and Japan (bet you can guess which one came from where) and the keys came from a local hardware store. Gotta love small businesses - the man let me behind the counter and gave me a whole box of unusable keys to sort through!

I sent my niece C the For the Makers bracelet I embellished...

and we tucked in a top from Japan for nephew L.

N helped me make the wrapping paper by drawing on white tissue, and the beautiful red paper was a gift from Paper Tiger Shanghai. (You can read more about them here.)

I used the black and white pattern on the reverse side of the wrapping paper to make the tags. About a week after sending these we got a proposal from my sister-in-law to just send one gift per family, on time or late...Ah, well. We'll coordinate better next time!

  1. doesn't it feel good to get that done? plus, they look great.

    the clock is really ticking now.... only a few short days to go... tomorrow, I bake :)

  2. @Michele Pacey - Yes! It feels great.

    I wish you the best with the baking! I'm not much of a baker but I'm going to try to recreate my uncle's Swedish Toast recipe since we're not going up to Seattle. Now to find some cardamom...
