Special packaging for a special friend

I finally got this gift to my BFF over the weekend so I can share it here on my blog. The gift inside wasn't anything special but I made up for it with customized wrapping.

I was inspired in creating this envelope wrapping by a posts at Home Sweet Homemade. I started with a scrap of wrapping paper which I cut to size and then folded so that the gift inside was fully covered plus an extra 2 inches at the top for a flap. I found this absolutely perfect paper in my scrap bin for the flap - I just love the shaped edge. Even though the envelope is glued together at the sides, the final touch was the ribbon woven through the gold eyelets (for extra strength and shine).
