cereal box gift wrap

Youngest daughter said last night ‘When are we doing my teacher’s Christmas present?’

Bearing in mind she finished school today for the holidays, last night became a flurry of activity on the cake front and a gift box had to be found pretty swiftly!

We used the bottom of a cornflake box – she painted it white to try and cover the design and then we covered it in torn tissue pieces. She painted a layer of PVA glue all over for shine and then a tissue layer was place inside and curling ribbon handles added.

Considering it only took about 30 ninutes to make I think it looks pretty good – not sure how my lovely husband is going to feel about all the cereal packets being kept in the future ‘just in case’ though…
