Gift Wrap ideas
Gift wrap Ideas! A very cool old Russian ammunition box from WWII.
We found this old box in an antique store. Perfect for the gun collector
receiving this gift. We filled it with moss, and all the makings
for his favorite drink, plus a snack and a box of ammo. He loved it!
Do the same thing with any box that fits the personality of the person
An old sewing box or a new one filled with sewing tools and supplies
(pins, scissors, patterns, etc) that a sewer never has enough of.
Also consider canisters for a baker, filled with baking ingredients.
No end to the types of boxes and contents that are far more unique and
custom than anything you would find ready-made.
And that's The DIY Effect!
Gift wrap ideas! A canister set by Pioneer Women is so beautiful that no gift wrap could be better. Each of these canisters are filled with favorite treats, teas, coffees, cookies, or pretty much anything the recipient likes.
This particular ribbon is 5 yards (a gift in itself). It has wire so it was easy enough to whip into shape with a couple of bow ties at the top, and a few loops tied in, or tie a simple bow with any ribbon or string.
This unique gift wrap is truly the easiest most natural, and free. Wrap with a brown paper bag, newspaper, magazine pages, or whatever you have. Gather leaves, berries or whatever you can find around your yard or neighborhood. Tie it all up and you have a beautiful and festive unique gift wrap for anytime of year!
That’s the DIY effect!
Hello. My name is Pam. Welcome to theDIYeffect.com, previously known as RetroSewing.net. Thank you for visiting. We're updating the design and content, so things are changing, but it will be worth it when done.
Much has happened since I started this website in 2009. A big move to the country, lots of remodeling, gardening, experimenting with recipes, party planning and parties are just some of the activities keeping our family busy. Living in the country is full of new, exciting things to do and discover. I love the fresh air, wild life, and beautiful country views, not to mention new experiences, like watching my husband learn to drive a tractor.
Our life is full of DIY's, and that's how theDIYeffect.com was born. Retrosewing will always be a part of theDiyeffect.com, and retro sewing projects will continue, but this change of name (RetroSewing to theDIYeffect.com) will accommodate all our DIY activities, including "Home Improvements", "Recipes", "Gluten-Free Recipes", "Growing a Square Foot Garden", "Party Planning Ideas", and of course "Sewing". I'll soon be posting the adorable "1950's Playsuit" with romper and skirt, as well as many other DIY's. Hope you'll join us.
