simple things

One of my favourite shops in Salisbury is the india shop.
Lots of lovely things to browse and buy and they have a fair trade policy which is an added bonus.
I bought a little gift for my mum and it was popped into one of these paper bags made from magazine pages.

This afternoon I unfolded the glued down folds to see how it was done. My brain doesn't work well enough to work it out otherwise despite it being a very simple thing to make!

I'm in love with it's simplicity and quickness and have made 3 torn from pages of a Christmas magazine.

Simple things make me happy.


  1. Yummy Christmas magazine, it makes really a lovely wrapping up!
    Have a good weeekend!

  2. The simpler things are often the best.They look lovely! :0)

  3. oh yes, I love those Indian newspaper / magazine bags - aren't they great?
    Thank you for all your support, positive thinking and lovely words this week and leading up to the Panel day. I'm still floating on a cloud ...
    Happy days to you,

  4. Hmmm...a tutorial might be in order (no pressure)...

  5. I love that you worked it out! My brain is far too ditsy to do that! Brilliant!
