Stuffed animals may be cute and cuddly but when it comes to the gift wrapping department, it can be a little tricky. Because they come in all shapes and sizes, it can be pretty difficult to find the right supplies especially for the bigger items. Fret no more because today we’re dishing out a step by step trick that’ll up your wrapping skills in a flash. Read up.
Step # 1: Find cool wrapping paper.
Think about the recipient and what they might like. If the packaging appeals to them, it builds up the hype and betters the experience. There are lots of options for sale or if you’re crafty enough you can DIY one yourself using paint, stencils and a craft paper. Into calligraphy? Put that into god use. It’ll make quite the unique and personalized print for that wrapping paper. We suggest putting the toy inside a box so that you could disguise it. Stuffed animals have a pretty obvious form. We don’t want to ruin the surprise.
Step # 2: Always add a bow.
Think about it as the cherry on top. These ribbons simply make the present even more special than it already is. There are various ways to tie a bow and depending on how simple or grand you’d want it to be, the internet is brimming with tutorials. Open that search bar and type the words in. You’ll be a master bow maker in no time.
Step # 3: Add a little extra.
Apart from the toy, it would be fun to add another present into the mix that’s related to it. It could be a necklace which can be tied around the stuffed toys’ neck, a diary to hold memories between the recipient and the toy or perhaps a little accessory for the teddy like a matching hat or clothes. This is optional but don’t you think it would be fun?
Step # 4: Print out a birth certificate.
Remember those beanie babies? They went viral during the ‘90s and early 2000s because of this. It’s simple but it’s a fun addition. Look up a blank certificate, print it out and place it in a pretty envelope. Leave the name blank so the recipient can choose one themselves.
You see, wrapping and gifting stuffed animals should be fun not only for the recipient but also for the giver. What are you waiting for? Time to wrap!
