Recently we were invited to the birthday party of our friends’ 7 year old son. What I love most about birthdays are shopping for the gift and wrapping it. Once I got the gift, I put it inside a recycled cereal box and wrapped it with kraft paper. What else would I use eh? Next comes the decorating part. I always find it rather difficult to decorate a gift meant for a boy. I don’t want it to look girlish with dollies, flowers, pink colour or ribbons. After cracking my head, I came out with a simple design. I used the decorative tapes to create the number 7. I also used my red washi tape and another decorative tape to create a 3-tier cake and hand-drawn the cake stand and candles.
After that I used a piece of twine to tie the box and attached a recycled gift tag to it. Forgot to take a photo of the finished gift wrap *slap forehead* This is my latest diy gift wrapping idea. Have a nice weekend, peeps. We don’t have anything planned but I certainly won’t mind relaxing in one of those beautiful Sunset beach nc real estate. Ashley has a little exam next week so this weekend will be spent doing revisions.
