Floral Springy Gift Wrap
Or, pink and green, yay

A couple of someones have been very helpful to a friend of mine and me, and I wanted to show my appreciation. I couldn't do much for the fellow, but the lady in question admired a certain necklace, a big dramatic piece that I felt worked well, but have never really garnered all that much attention from anyone else. So I decided to give it to her, and when she called to tell me she was perhaps 20 minutes away, I needed to do one of my quickie wrapping jobs (because actually getting off my butt and doing it the night before would've been way too logical.)

Spring giftwrap. Transparent plastic, ribbons, tape, silk flowers

I found a box I'd painted white, and a piece of transparent plastic printed with a pink and green floral theme—possibly save from a bouquet or something. It didn't cover the box, but since it was transparent, I just taped it on in sort of a diagonal pattern.

Then I taped a rather tatty piece of wide pink ribbon (probably also from a bouquet), a matching bow, and some curling ribbon, trapping the silk fuschia between the bow and mound of curling ribbon. The green ribbon is wire-edged, a gift from my sister, and I just threaded it through. So things weren't tacked very hard.

Then, since my rhododendron bush was in bloom, I photographed the gift using the matching flowers as a backdrop. The recipient liked it enough to take the box and wrappings with her, so I was very pleased.
