...but I couldn't! They reminded me of the Charlie Brown Christmas Tree - such potential.
Man...what I could do with that tree. My little Elf toes are curling with excitement just thinking about it but unfortunately that story has been told and sadly I won't be trimming Charlie Brown's tree.
What I should have done was walk on by but I couldn't. I picked up three misfits, gifts that needed a little sprucing up. Normally I wouldn't waste my time but the product was really good, it was the wrapping that left a lot to be desired. Enter ....the Elf!
Here is one of the lovely gifts I purchased. Lovely? Ummmmm...not so much!!
The bow on the gift had seen better days and the cello paper was ....well, you can see for yourself. I knew with a little Elf attention I could have this gift looking neater in no time. Out came the glue gun, embellishments and ribbon. I even added a little gold bell so when the gift is picked up it jingles....awwww. So festive looking now don't you agree?
For the record I don't go buying gifts that need to be re wrapped, that's just stupid! Who does that? No one!! You just don't! However, I did and I can't believe I did. It was just that these were the perfect gifts I needed and let me tell you I stood there for quite sometime asking myself if I should buy them. I looked at others similar but these were by far the best ones, they were just poorly wrapped. I'm actually a little surprised that this large coffee establishment where I purchased these gifts allowed their product to get so manhandled and looking the way they did. I wonder what Corporate would think? I'm not going to go there but that's a good topic for another day. Right up there with the germs being spread when you slide/stick in your debit card or credit card into those new little machine thingys at the stores. I was behind a man entering his information after inserting his card and he sneezed directly on it - ewwwww!!! I didn't know what to do ((squirm))...I was next in line and would be using it. Out came the gloves.
Wherever you are in your day, I hope you're enjoying it!
Wishing you many wonderful creations!
