2.7.11 ... aquarius capricornus vintage library pocket and sweet wrapping

i needed to package up this sweet zodiac ring and had a couple of ideas. one was to make some teeny shredded tissue paper to decorate the inside of the ring's travel method - a miniature ziploc. i also thought it would be fun to toss in some of my mini punched hearts.

here is my hearts jar and below you can see the filled ziploc...

then i wanted to make something astrology themed as a little extra because i have this nifty old discarded book that is about the constellations and planets and the universe. i also have these unused vintage library book pockets. i found that the page & illustration i wanted to use was a perfect fit when trimmed just right. so i covered the pocket with the constellations on the front and the text on the back.

i love the result. lastly, i made one of my thank you for caring bookmarks and taped the ring packet to it to stabilize it for its postal journey. i made a tiny note card from a security envelope and slipped a piece of lavender thread through it to attach it to the bag - which already had a teeny hole built in.

i do hope the recipient will enjoy the packaging and the little extras. i loved creating everything.

evan made two loaves of amish bread yesterday which is soooo deliciously delightful. tonight for dinner we had bacon, avocado, tomato, lettuce and home made blue cheese spread sandwiches on that bread. oh my gravy. outstanding. you might want to try one yourself one night soon. 
sweet dreams, everyone. thanks for stopping by. until tomorrow. happiness to you. from me. with heart. ox joon
