Vintage hankies are pretty all on their own, but packaging makes all the difference. A unique gift for teachers, hostesses, or holiday party guests.
Packaging makes all the difference and a CD case is the perfect fit. You might have CD cases laying around or you can purchase empty ones at an office supply store. Just strip out the guts.
Use cardstock paper cut to fit the CD case and using a little spray adhesive cover the cardstock with, fabric, sheet music, wrapping paper, wallpaper, scrapbooking paper, or what ever your creative minds choose.
Now Iron your vintage hanky and put it in your CD case.
You can find vintage hankies at any antique store for $2-$3 and you might be lucky enough to find some at a thrift store for less.
You could do the hanky alone or you could iron the hanky around the cardstock paper and add a piece of jewelry.
For those of you that make cards and tags it would be a great way to package them for selling or gifting.
Of course the real fun comes with decorating the case, the possibilities are endless!
If you have a gift that is going to need more space than a CD container has, you could use the paper CD holders.
Use the cardstock paper for backing and punch a hole for the ribbon.
I ironed a vintage doily around the cardstock and added a pin.
Maybe an ornament, this one is available in my online store.
The possibilities are endless, it would also be a great way to present a gift certificate.
If anyone has or knows someone with the initials E.M.D. let me know and I will send you this hanky!
