LOVE this gift wrap idea! This could work for Christmas, Mom's Day AND Bridesmaids!! Wrap gifts in old sheet music and vintage newspaper clippings. They were finished with ribbon and sparkly jewellery. If you have a music stamp you could do your own paper

In the 1770s and 1780s printed cotton fabrics began to replace silk in popularity for women’s gowns. The material of this gown has a dotted ground and is printed in a repeating pattern of floral sprays. The gown has a fitted back and open front below the waist, revealing a petticoat of the same fabric. The lack of decoration and use of cotton instead of silk indicates that this gown was probably worn during summer afternoons for card games and tea parties, rather than for evening dress.
