This gift measures perhaps 4” (100mm) across: it is a little chocolate box, used to wrap a bead for a neighbor who is moving away. For one thing, uncrisp corners really show on a box this small. —The paper at least had a suitably small motif, and since Laura enjoys gardening, (and there were flowers on the bead) I thought the pattern appropriate. Wonder of wonders the purple cord matched perfectly and was just barely long enough to tie into a handsome square knot, thereby providing a subtle focal point.
The green curling ribbon was really too big a clump, but I reverse-curled it (gently!) to open up some of the tight curls into longer trails. A little bit of white ripped ribbon completed the design. And all that weedy creeping charlie served as a very nice background for the pic.
