Wrapping it up!

We have a birthday party to go to tomorrow at Chuck-e-Cheese. The perfect gift for a two-year-old little girl? BOOKS! The perfect "wrapping"? A $3 Wal-mart basket...

Max helped me pick out the books and we wrote a little note inside each of the books so the Birthday Girl would know that they were "Max Approved"...

I then searched the garage for some spray paint that would be suitable for a little girl--yellow offered a nice change for me. I pulled out the mask and sprayed the basket.

Twenty minutes later we have a personal gift that she is sure to enjoy for years to come.

I always like to use twine with ribbon to make my bows.

A few months ago I used some birthday paper to make a whole set of tags so that I don't have to make one every time we have a party to go to. This one matched my color theme perfectly.

Other great wrapping ideas...

Number paper and a red marker = "Calendar" Wrapping Paper

Jump Rope Ribbon

Cupcake Foil Flowers--This one is on my list to try!

Pom-poms--Cute & Cheap
Newspapers & Maps--Very Green!

And for the man in your life...a "Man Bucket"
