a Very Merry Giftwrap Giveaway!

Hello to you all and happy Saturday morning! A few crafty friends and I have teamed up this weekend to do little blog-hop party! Each of us decided to put our own spin on the traditional stocking concept. I first thought of a hanging doile but then I thought what could be sweeter than to fill than a doile envelope! and so, an idea was formed and brought to life.





I did create a tutorial for my doile envelope and I'll post it this coming week but first the fun stuff! I'm giving away this envelope and it's filled with all sorts of fun little trinkets, perfect for helping to add that extra special touch to packages as you wrap your gifts this month!






there are snips of vintage seam binding and lace, 2 handmade garlands, stitched gift tags, a spool of my favorite pink bakers-twine, mini clothes pins, 2 handmade flowers, typewriter tags, a vintage Santa pick, a pink button tag, and tinsel star, glittered leaves and a few paper doiles all tucked away into a pretty vintage doile envelop.



To enter the very-merry giftwrap giveaway please leave a comment at the end of this post!
I'll choose a winner on Wed. 14th. Goodluck!
