A Birthday Gift Sans Gift Wrap

A few weeks ago (when it was still cold and rainy) the boys got to go to their dear friend's ice cream themed birthday party.  I ended up finding a great gift that went perfectly with the theme and I came up with a pretty creative way to wrap out gift.

 Our gift consisted of this wooden ice cream cone toy

and a kids apron from Target.  I couldn't find an image of the one we bought, but this one below is another cute ice cream cone option.  The kids apron we bought from target had a ruffle detail.

I wrapped the toy using the apron.  The ties worked well to create a bow in the front, the apron's neck loop went around the box handle and the ruffle detail ended up creating a small "skirt" for our present.  I didn't use any paper or extra ribbons.  A pretty green gift wrap, I would say. :)  

To cover up the exposed handle, some card stock circles were taped on with the letters of the birthday girl's name written on them.

Little Pilot also made a matching ice cream birthday card.  We simply cut out some half circles out of construction paper and glued them on top of a drawn ice cream cone.

If you have an excited child like I did, a little tape may have held the top part of the apron a little better in place (you can see it wrinkling a bit).

The party itself was super cute and my friend Jenny always comes up with the best decorations and party games.  Here are the boys having some fun at the party.
