After decorating gifts with nests I wanted to do something different. Maybe finish up my teacher gifts but I am still gathering supplies. So here is another bird inspired gift. This is for a friend who is celebrating a significant birthday. She plans on taking a very personal spiritual journey after the holidays and so I thought it would be nice to give her a journal to take along. I added a feather pen, a blue crystal pencil and a blue watercolour pencil. All inspired by the Thomas Paul slipcovered journal and the wonderful robin's egg blue that lines the inside covers.
I guess you could say that this is wrapping without the wrapping. The book itself is so lovely I couldn't bear to cover it up. I was completely inspired by Ez's pom pom video tutorial at Creature Comforts. And she is definitely right ... those pom poms are the cutest after a haircut.
