My son just turned 16 and is car obessed, so for his birthday I decided to decorate one his presents to look like a stop light.
- Tissue paper
- White printer paper
- Glue stick
- Jar lid or other circular item
- Markers (optional if you use red, green and yellow tissue paper)
Wrap the present in white printer paper if the box has writing on it indicating what it is the package before wrapping it in the tissue paper (I chose to use yellow tissue for the main part of the stoplight) and secure the pieces with tape as you go.
This turned a little tricky when I decided to buy him a lava lamp that he wanted and it was in a tall, cynlindrical package instead of box. To cover the ends in paper, put in the center of a white piece of paper and draw around it, then cut approximately 2-3 inches away from the drawn circle.
