I’m delighted to welcome Cayce from Just a Curl as our guest today!!
I’m loving her idea for a quick and easy way to wrap a birthday present.
Hello, fellow bargain lovers! Many thanks to Rene for allowing me to do a guest post here on Bargain Hoot.
Recently BigBoy had a birthday party to attend. I had a boxed Lego set to give as a present, but the only wrapping paper I had on hand was way too girly for a boy’s 6th birthday.
Instead of buying new paper, I decided to use some of the brown shipping paper I had for my etsy orders.
Who doesn’t like getting packages in the mail?!
This was a super-easy project. I just wrapped the box as normal, whipped out a black sharpie, a red marker, and a random sticker BigBoy got to choose.
If I hadn’t been lazy I would have used some twine I had on hand to tie around the box, but I thought it was fine as-is. Especially since the birthday party started in 30 minutes.
The awesome thing is…there’s not even a need for a card because the names are written directly on the paper. Let’s face it, kids never care about the cards anyway!
So there you go, a creative, easy, and convenient way to package (sorry, pun intended) a birthday present!
