Wrapping up the banner

     I  made a banner for my Mother-in-law for her Birthday.  (read more about that here).   She lives far away and we could not make it for her Birthday.  I wanted to send her a box that she could open on her Birthday and be reminded of how much we love her.

   It is bright, personal, and beautiful.
     Here's how I wrapped up the banner to put in the box:
    I folded up the banner carefully 1 triangle at a time so that it would unfold from left to right and not get tangled. Then, I wrapped it with jute and tied a bow.

I was going to send it like this and then I decided she needed to be warned to use with care. 

         I attached a mini clothespin to the jute with a little note saying to handle with care.

         Then, I set it aside to pack in the box.  I love the attention to detail that the jute and the note add. 

         Have you made a banner for a loved one?  Did you ever mail one?
