dear ruth: may

every month i send a small gift to ruth. she and i have never met. i send her these gifts as part of a program called "secret pals" on behalf of the not-for-profit group, humanitarian service project. my goal is to brighten her day with the gift, card, and hopefully the wrapping. this month i got her a book and a gift card. the idea for the wrapping of the book came from this awesome class that i bought online from, titled "paper arts" by alton dulaney. he has some really nice ideas on how to make gift wrapping unique. just what i needed for my ruth. what i liked about this wrap is that it creates a pocket for the card. so simple and functional. the images here show the package with and without the card so that you can see the pocket. fun. i hope that ruth likes it too.
