the various and sundry creations of sylvus tarn
Pink Pom Pom
some nontraditional materials & colours...

So this gift was wrapped in black paper with lettering in pink, lime, emerald, cobalt,turquoise and red with white snowflakes. I thought the recipient would be amused by the hideous pink pompom, (which matched the lettering) so that became the basis of the design.

However, it was really too big for the box, so, since I didn't care about it, I sheared it a little smaller. Those ancient scissors I use for gift wrapping have got really dull...

Never one to waste, I simply glued some of the clippings on down the side of the box, as shown above.

It isn't all that often that we get a white xmas, but this year we did, so I took advantage of the snow to provide a nice background.
