Really Custom Gift Wrap

I first discovered the book On the Night You Were Born when Liz from Linda and Harriett blogged about it. I think it’s such a sweet poem. My favorite stanza is below:

On the night you were born
the moon smiled with such wonder
that the stars peeked in to see you
and the night wind whispered, life will never be the same.
 

I was thinking about it this morning (for some obvious reasons) and I used it for calligraphy practice. Then, when I remembered I was going to a friend’s baby shower, I went a bought the book and wrapped it in my scrap pages from the morning. I am actually really proud of how it turned out.
