Gossamer : DIY Quick Gift Style
Right about now, in the garden something shimmers like the moon, poking through the rose hips and drying leaves. Commonly called Money Plant I adore its Latin name as it gives more of a true picture... Lunaria annua. Luminous indeed and perfect for things of a gossamer like nature. Here simple wax paper from the kitchen was used and on top paper with a deckle edge. On top of that the Lunaria seed heads were affixed in a loose rosette. You can add some color with maple leaves or dried and pressed rose petals glued inside the wax paper (trick gleaned from Martha Stewart). Now is the perfect time to sow Lunaria seeds or start harvesting your bouquets. For more gift design inspiration be sure to visit the GaveThat flickr pool.
