Hello friends, TGIF.


With today's post, I feel like I'm back and forth between Fall and Christmas holidays, as I shared my first holiday post earlier this week, and now here we are back again discussing a Fall idea. However, sometimes opportunity strikes at the last minute, as is the case today.


This weekend is a very special occasion for someone very special to me.  It's my mom's birthday, the big 7-0! With her birthday being in the Fall, I took advantage of a fun little Fall gift wrap idea for her gift that I hope she will like.



Last year, I bought this bunch of faux chrysanthemums for another project that I never got around to.  I thought, why not use the flowers for a beautiful gift topper?



Simply, cut the flowers off the stems at the top most point you can go. 



Arrange flowers on gift package, and secure with glue from a hot glue gun.  Since the bottom of the flowers are plastic, set the temperature on high.



If you wish, paste a monogram letter next to the arrangement (I chose "M" for mom, as the letter "I" might have looked a little funny).




The flower bunch is Ashland from Michaels stores.  The glitter letters can be found at Hobby Lobby (I couldn't find a direct online link; they only seem to list the silver and burlap colours).  The wrapping paper is a pearl white and you can purchase a roll HERE.  Finally, the ribbon was a find at Dollarama.



Thanks all for taking a look.  Do you think she'll enjoy this package? Have a beautiful weekend :)
