We gave a bridal shower for one of our nurses this week. I love to give gifts that relate to cooking, and she was registered for a set of melamine bowls. I have bowls similar to them and I really like them, and knew she would use them a lot, so I decided to get them for her.
I enjoy wrapping a gift in something that relates to it. I considered a dish towel, but it wasn't big enough. Flour sack towels are much larger and I have always thought they had a natural and fresh look. I bought this pack of flour sack towels at WalMart.
To wrap the bowls, first I placed them on top of the towel:
Then I pulled up all four corners, being careful to tuck in all the open spots:
I used a pipe cleaner to secure it temporarily. You could also use a twist tie.
I tied a satin ribbon around it and removed the pipe cleaner. I ran the ribbon through the gift tag before I tied it again:
Instead of a bow, I tied it underneath the tag because I wanted it to show:
I made the tag with card stock and put some fun kitchen stickers on it:
Now I am pondering what to do with the other four flour sack towels....
