What do you give to the person who has everything? These handmade gifts are a great idea for a birthday, the holiday season, or to present as a special “thank you” to the chef in your family.
Instructions for A Gift Pour Vous Project
The Where Women Cook: Celebrate! cookbook is the item I chose to wrap as a present. This quick-and-easy packaging idea was made with bags and fabric strips from the Handmade by Somerset Collection. Simply insert your book or magazine, and then use fabric glue to attach the ruffled ribbon around the middle for a "wrapped" look. Finish off your present by adding a coordinating fabric label.
Your recipient is going to get hungry looking at all the fantastic dishes in their new cookbook, so why not add a little snack? Using ready-to-alter clear top tins, adhere the same ruffled fabric strips to the outside of the tin. Grab the "Pour Vous" (for you) label from your ticking fabric label set and attach it to the tin’s lid. Line the inside of the tin with a few sheets of unbleached wax paper, and insert your favorite cookie or treat!
