It’s funny how I used to think Kate Spade was a waste of money, “its just a plain wallet labeled with a fan icon and it cost THAT MUCH… why?” — yep even though it was so obvious that it is a Spade I thought their logo was a fan (lol don’t be judgin!). BTW guys, I bought this exact wallet a few months ago. I never really appreciated minimalist chic design until Pinterest. And now it’s pretty much the theme for my entire blog and how I wrapped the giveaway prizes for my recent Maybelline giveaway.
Now is also good time to remind you, just in case you forget, that it is Mother’s Day on May 8, 2016. Buy your mom and yourself a gift you both well deserve, and wrap it ala Kate Spade style… okay maybe you don’t have to wrap it if you’re buying one for yourself. I hope you and your momma like this!
“Hello Beautiful” — printed the text on a white bond paper, polka dots gross grain ribbon (Carolinas). “Thank you” — gold wrapper (cost PHP45 National Bookstore), wrote “thank you” on a black paper and cut into a folded 3D banner shape. Rolled stick — gold polka dots wrapper (cost PHP20 Ruins Bazaar), clear cellophane (you can also use the clear plastic used to package a bond paper) and black suede ribbon (National Bookstore). Big bow — black gross grain ribbon (Carolinas) gold stripes wrapper (PHP20 Ruins Bazaar). Sparkly gold bow — gold stripes wrapper (Ruins Bazaar), glitter gold ribbon (Carolinas). Other decors— stripes ribbon, and black with metallic gold dots box from Sugar Paper LA, also available @glitterboxph Instagram shop (send a direct message to order).
I had everyone who joined in mind when I wrote the golden “thank you” on that black banner gift box – cheesy but true! So once again thank you all. I love hosting giveaways, and not just cos it brings people to my blog but also cos I really… really enjoy wrapping the prizes— bonus points if the winner likes it! It’s good to feel like Santa’s elf for a day. I just wish I had more than one gift set to give out. I do have another giveaway coming this May tho so stay tuned! Anyway, that being said, congratulations Cristine D. For winning the Maybelline Giveaway! I hope you like your prizes!
