A wild wild gift wrap for the zoo birthday party

I hope you liked the Zoo animals cake I shared in the last post...

Well when I came back home after helping my friends make the cake, I was super psyched and felt that I was not DONE with the theme yet. So I decided to wrap the birthday boy's gifts to match with the party theme.

So? Does it fit well with the "Zoo" theme? Here's how I did it.

  1. Start with the Zebra gift base. Since I did not have a white wrapping paper, I wrapped the gift with a wrapping paper turned inside out.

 2. Then I cut black construction paper to make Zebra stripes and glued it around the gift.

The Zebra is now ready.

3. Next I wanted giraffe. But I did not have yellow wrapping paper and did not have time to paint it. So I settled on Monkey as I had a ton of brown paper from packaging supplies. Here is the wrapped box.

4. Finally, a bit of handiwork and you have an odd looking monkey. I was trying to make curious George, but it looks like George went to visit the "Planet of Apes".

And there you have it... What do you think!

Until next time,
