A Special Gift

My friend Kelly-Anne Gray turned 13th on Sunday so I made her a birthday card.
Here I have written more about Kelly and her family.
When I wanted to wrap her gift, we only had Christmas gift wrapping paper! (I am not someone who would wrap a birthday gift with Christmas paper!)
So my mom suggested that we make her a gift bag!

We took apart a gift bag that we had, to find out how to construct our own.
You need quite a big peace of paper.
I used Scrapbook paper but I had to join two pieces together.
The holes for the ribbon, I made with a normal puncher and then put scrapbook eyelets in, that it would not tear.

I made the bag out of the same paper range as the gift card.

We celebrated Kelly-Anne’s 13th birthday with High Tea at the Mount Nelson Hotel in Cape Town.
Our girls, her mother, my mother, her Grandma and Aunt enjoyed the spoil at the Hotel tremendously!
We had plates full of the most delicious cakes, finger pies, éclairs and cucumber sandwiches.

We also tried out a few different herb and fruit teas!

This was a memory making event for us girls!
