Holiday Wrap-Up Pt. 2: A Mad Hatter Tea Set

Mad Hatter Gift Tag For Christmas this year, my sister gave me a set of classic white tea cups and saucers. Almost better than the gift was how she wrapped them.

First, she wrapped seven of the eight sets in a box, as per a usual gift; but the eighth set she wrapped separately, securing it to the top of the box. This meant I had to unwrap only one set and the rest stayed securely packaged in their box (smartly marked with a Fragile label) until the Christmas-morning chaos was over and I could unpack them in the kitchen.

Even better though, was the handmade gift tag my sister created to go along with the gift. Sewn from two layers of wool felt, she made a Mad Hatter–esque top hat, complete with a style/price label (on the back of which was the To/From tag for the gift). Brilliant.
