Recycled Hello Kitty Gift Wrapping

My girls were invited to a Hello Kitty birthday party and they wanted to wrap the gift in Hello Kitty wrapping paper.  I didn’t have any Hello Kitty wrapping paper so I decided that I would just make it.  We had just made a trip to Costco so we had boxes lying around, so I thought, lets make the box into a bag.


What you will need:

* A box

* Ribbon

* Scissors

* Wrapping paper or paper

* A hole punch

* Tape

* Print out of Hello Kitty pictures.

* Card Stock

* Pom pom balls



First, you will need to cut the flaps off the box.

Then, wrap the box as if you are going to wrap a present. On the open end of the box tuck the paper inside the box and tape it down.

Next, punch holes on two sides off the box.

Then, string your ribbon through the box. Once, the ribbon is through, tie a knot in the ribbon on the outside of the box.  Repeat on the other side of the box.

I downloaded an image from goggle picture and printed it. Then, I cut out the image of Hello Kitty for my bag. (You can choose any image to go with the party theme you are attending.) Sometimes, when you enlarge a picture the pixels are off, so I used a marker to trace the lines to make it look sharper.   I also took the card stock and cut a triangle to use as a hat.

Next, glue the pom pom ball to the top of the triangle to make a party hat for Hello Kitty. Then, glue the hat and the Hello Kitty Image to the box. Your box is now ready for the gift.
