Ever have a last minute gift and no tissue paper? My daughter has a bridal shower to attend tonight and came home with the gift thinking we had lots of wrapping goodies (I usually do).
She found a bag but no tissue. I remembered that we had some cellophane on a roll downstairs that I have had FOREVER. I actually like it better than tissue. It isn't wrinkly, didn't rip, stands up out of the bag prettily and for extra measure, I sprinkled pretty little iridescent heart shaped confetti (from my matchbox swap partner!)in the cellophane. It stuck to the wrap with static and now the glittery pink confetti adds another dimension and some glitz! What started out as a way to solve a problem may become the way I do all my gift bags!


  1. It looks elegant and beautiful! What a creative idea.

  2. What a great idea Katchy! I love it. perfect for a bridal shower too! Thanks for the idea!

  3. Oh my gosh... When I see cellophane on sale after holidays I am buying it up!! What a great idea!! Now I can't wait to do a gift!! I have a clear one with pink roses on it and a clear with a lavender lace pattern on it!can't wait to wrap it up!! Lori


Thank you for taking the time to say hello :)
