half the fun of making a gift is deciding how to package it... for me at least the elephant in the last post was a present, and i contemplated a while on how to tag him. i made this card with edison's story inside (see story in the post below). my lotus root pattern is printed on one side of a 3"x3" card that fits into a square envelope, also with my lotus root pattern printed on side. the husband kindly participated by making me an envelope template.
my chinese is very limited and i made a typo. oops.
unfortunately, i forgot to take a picture of it, but i cut slits in the envelope, slid a ribbon into it, and then tied it around the elephant's head. it was all sorts of adorable. truthfully, deciding how to present edison was almost more fun than making him.
