The other day I shared with you the gifts we put together for Quinn’s teachers. Now I am sharing with you how we wrapped them. The title is a tad bit misleading, because although there is a printable pattern, our printer is broke so I had to freehand it. Imagine how much cuter yours can be.
You can see these were just whipped together. The glue is still drying. It was actually a last minute plan and I didn’t technically have all the supplies. No pink or peach paper, so we colored paper pink for the cheeks and peach for the face. No printer to get the pattern. Here are the basics.
Pretty simple. Paint the kiddos hand white and have them put an upside down hand print on the gift bag. Use our Santa hand print pattern printable to cut out the hat, brim, face, cheeks, nose & mustache. Make sure you have a little puff ball for the end of the hat. Glue down the face then the hat followed by the brim and cotton ball. Next up are the cheeks, mustache and nose. Finally, stick on some googly eyes.
There you have it, a festive personal gift bag for someone special in your kiddo’s life. While I was busy cutting out the pieces for Quinn and I to glue on, he was busy making cards for his special teachers.
Last, but not least, we had to wrap up Quinn’s book for the preschool book exchange. I used the tissue paper we had out and then he punched snow flakes with one of my paper punches and glued them on. He absolutely loved it and thought that the paper punch was pretty cool. Well we were working he said, “I’m like a little elf”.
My favorite part of all this crafting was how excited Quinn was to share his gifts and how special it made him feel to make others feel special.
So tomorrow we will be presenting this:
With a homemade card. I’m hoping the teachers will feel pretty special. Any of you try your hand (Ha ha… pun intended) at DIY gift wrapping? Do you have a go to wrapping technique?
