post a parcel: christmas edition

post a parcel | south by north

Recently I took part in the second round of Nia Neve’s Post A Parcel. Nia paired us all with someone, and the idea is to swap a parcel containing five items, this time Christmas-themed. I was paired with Sarah, an Aussie girl who has just moved to Italy. As yet I don’t actually think my parcel has reached her despite being posted practically a month ago (big sadface) I really hope it gets there soon!

(Sarah, if you are reading this and don’t want to spoil the surprise, look away now!!!)

I decided to go down the diy route for the majority of the items, and kept in mind that this parcel would be winging it’s way all the way to Italy so needed to be fairly light and non-fragile. I also had a bit of fun with the wrapping. Here is what I put into my parcel:
– Diy mini paper ‘flat pack’ Christmas trees
– Diy clay grey and copper tree ornaments
– Small selection of lace ribbon and buttons
– Diy ‘Happy New Year’ bunting with a mini washi tape spool
– Diy glitter dot gift tags

    • Thanks Fiona! From the bit of research I have done it seems like the post service in Italy is pretty shocking… as yet it still hasn’t arrived!
