TEN HANDMADE VALENTINES GIFT IDEAS

Just enough time for one more gift wrap idea, Autumn colours with lace and recycled papers. Add dried twigs and berries for birthdays and a sprinkling of gold leaves for Christmas. I used Place cards and Alphabet index tabs for labelling, both available from Papermash.
