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.
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.
