Papertrey Ink :: Packaging Ambassador :: Potbellies Gift Toppers (*for 8 year old boys)
Hello and welcome! If you've come from the Papertrey Ink Packaging Ambassador post, you'll just need to scroll down a bit for the 'scary character' gift! And if you haven't seen that post yet, it's a tandem project to this one. I'll share a few photos from that one, but I recommend checking it out, too.
Gift wrapping for kids and babies has become such a fun exercise for me, especially since I became a mom. It's given a whole new meaning to this art and since I have a boy and a girl, I get to do all kinds of different wrappings. I focused on the cute and sweet packages on the Papertrey post, and here on my blog, I'm giving you a bonus that I created when my 8-year-old son was not having any of the super-cute animals I made!
Here's a look at the adorable unicorn and rhino...all the details on making these shaker gift toppers are found HERE.
For packaging, I went with a plain kraft box and some New Leaf ribbon. The final touch was the Soft Stone gift tag. My son thought I did a pretty good job of scrapping the 'cutesy' stuff for this one, so as long as it's got his stamp of approval, I'm okay with it!
