    It turned out wonderful and the idea of the pillowcase being the wrapping is unique, also, congratulations on your Uncle's upcoming wedding!

    It turned out just great ... and the pillowcases are a nice touch. Congratulations to the soon-to-be newlyweds.

    It was always a swan, you just didn't recognise it. I love that you did the pillow cases and they will be the wrapping. That is cool
