A vintage Christmas – in August!

It is August 2017, the sun is shining… and I’ve just finished wrapping a gift for the Christmas issue of an American magazine.

With the theme being vintage I took the opportunity to use beautiful fabrics and diamanté jewellery all collected by my mother over many years.  The remnant of brocade was from an evening dress made for her when I was a child.  A lovely way to revive happy memories…

Using fabric makes wrapping super speedy.  It is also ideal for awkward shapes.  Simply stand the gift in the middle and gather the fabric at the top before securing with ribbon.  When it comes to decorating, earrings, brooches and other jewellery can all be used to add some Christmas sparkle.
