The Ship with Silver Sails
This couldprobably go somewhere else, but I figured that it's something Lauren and Jess will come to fear around gift giving time.|
For my cousin Nathan's birthday. What we gave him was a 1 000 000 candle power handheld halogen spotlight. So. I put the package in a bag and then proceeded to wrap said bag up in string. As you can see in the picture.
Next, I put that bag into another bag and tied the end off.
I then wrapped it up in newspaper using the traditional tape fare. Then it was covered in gluestick and had another layer of news paper applied to it.
I put the wrapped gift into another bag and tied the end off.
Using seran wrap, I covered the package in several layers of this stuff.
I then used one of the evilest things ever to use on plastic; double sided tape around the seran wrapped gift. I put a bag over it, applied more double sided tape and put another bag on top of that. I used string to tie it snuggly together.
Another bag and double sided tape, and I wrapped it up again with string.
Having found a box in the basement, I thoroughly coated the interior with spray adhesive and slid the gift in.
After applying more spray adhesive to the box and the top of the gift, I added shredded newspaper for an asthetic and equally frustrating appeal.
Sealing up the box, I added more spray adhesive to the flaps. Don't want to make this too easy, now do I?
Using more double sided tape, I added two more bags around the box.
And finally, after finding a larger box, I coated the inside of that with spray adhesive, slid the present in[it was a snug fit], covered the gift itself in the stuff and placed more shredded newspaper ontop.
You know that when your gift is three times its original size, it's been a wrap well done.
