Monday’s Make-it … { gift wrapping using Macy’s bag }



So, what does a decorator do when she doesn’t have
time to zip to the store to buy gift wrapping paper? She gets creative! My hubby’s v-day gift arrived and I was on the mission to get it wrapped before he spotted it. I fiqured I would create my own wrapping paper and then I spotted it …….. beautiful bright RED and WHITE color paper … um, not exactly wrapping paper … YET! I Spotted a Macy’s store bag, then grabbed scissors, tape, and a red ribbon …..


I loved that the bag have the bright red STAR and text ….

From it’s text … I added my own personalizing the ‘wrapping paper’:

Then, I grabbed some red velvet ribbon that I had and outlined the heart shape .. snip snip:

Here it is all wrapped with love …. no peeking inside until tomorrow!


This weekend, I started my V-day chocolate eating (I know, I know, I am early …. but I received a yummy gift from my hubby in the mail  (chocolate covered strawberries from Shari’s Berries ) and well I just HAAAAD to eat them .. it said so in the box, check it out:

I love how the packaging has written messages like ….”Close and lock the door. Hide behind large piece of furniture. quietly open box. Savor and enjoy.” And hey, I am a gal that follows rules, so I HAD TO EAT them (yes, hubby had some too). I highly recommend to treat yourself to some of these yummies or gift away to a love one … and it doesn’t haven’t to be Valentine’s day to give yourself or someone else a delicious treat!

Stay tuned tomorrow, where we have a Valentine’s gift for you!!! Have a beautiful day!

    Looks like a yummy weekend and a great start to V-Day Ada.

  2. How lucky are you to get chocolate early. Yum! My husband accidentally opened his V Day gift this weekend because he thought it was for my son. Oh well, it’s the thought that counts, right?

    Yum, the berries look delicious! The once opened, contents may disappear immediately would be so true for me.

    Btw. I just spread some pre Valentine’s love and nominated you for a Liebster Blog award. You can check for more details on my blog 😉

    Happy Monday!

    Love that you started your Valentine’s Day chocolate eating early. My kind of girl! I also like that you used a Macy’s bag to wrap your hubby’s v-day gift. Very resourceful and a great way to recycle.

    Using the Macys bag is very clever. Great idea. Eating chocolate covered strawberries is the best.
