This homemade Blueberry bread with a pinch of Lemon then wrapped in fun decorative wax paper was the perfect gift for our flute teacher, piano teacher and a loaf for my dad’s birthday! (Is there someone you’d like to show appreciation for at the end of the school year?)
Well June is just around the corner and you could make this sweet-bread wrapped up cute and ready to give to Dad, a teacher, or even to a friend or neighbor on their birthday. I baked and wrapped these yummy sweet loaves for music teachers and a loaf for my Dads birthday this week! He loves blueberries! It really is a sweet gift for giving. Let me show you how easy I made this fun Wax Paper!
Here’s how to make the printed Wax Paper:
Take 2 pieces of wax paper and sandwich a printed napkin or printed piece of tissue paper, between the wax papers. Iron for just a few seconds, and I mean a FEW SECONDS, moving quickly so as not to let the iron sit in one place for too long. And Wah-Lah…. That’s it!
I told you it was easy 🙂
I used an aqua polka-dotted napkin for my wax paper above, and I found the polka-a-dot napkins from my dollar store! Yay! The dollar store is also a great place to find tissue papers in bright prints for just a buck$1. You all know me, I LOVE my dollar store! Maybe you have some cute tissue prints on hand, anyway you slice it (yes pun intended 🙂 …..have fun making the waxed wrap. It adds a fun dimension of cuute-ness to wrapping up a loaf of sweet bread.
Now of course once I got going, I got on a roll and grabbed out some birthday tissue I had, and a red polka-dot tissue I had and ……well you get the picture. I figured while I had the roll of wax paper near the ironing board, and the iron was hot, well I kept going and made some to keep on hand for future giving. Besides I’ve another lil grand baby coming and wouldn’t it be cute to do baby tissue wax paper to use when taking a meal over 🙂 Like I said you can have a lot of fun while your iron is hot or a little fun, you pick! ❤️
As for the Tag – You can make the tag several easy ways. I made mine on my computer with just a simple font and a free blueberry clipart in word! Copy and paste and print! cut it out, done, Yep, No fancy program needed! You could go suuuper simple and just use a pc black paper punched out round or square and write on it with a white marker for a cute chalkboard looking tag…… and how cute that would be! Use whatch-ya got ladies! And keep it simple 🙂
To attach my tag and to finish it, I used some colored twine to wrap around the bread a few times for a special touch and simply taped the ends underneath with a piece of scotch tape. Thats it! What a fun way to give a loaf of sweet blueberry bread!
