So, I’ll admit.  As of today this is the only Christmas gift I have wrapped.  I had great aspirations of wrapping each present perfectly and uniquely, but I have a feeling tonight I will be tag team wrapping with Tanner just to get everything done!  How did December go by so quickly?

This gift is for my sweet nephew Daxon.  He has been a fan of trains, planes, and automobiles for as long as he could play, so I knew this wrapping would be great for him!  Now if I can just get everything else wrapped before Christmas!

What you’ll need:

  • gift tag
  • washi tape
  • thin sharpie
  • toy train (I got mine at hobby lobby in the dollhouse section)
  • hot glue and gun

What you’ll do:

  • Take a strip of washi tape and place it on the gift tag
  • Write the gift recipient’s name onto the tape and either hot glue or tie the gift tag onto the wrapping paper.  I chose to hot glue mine, because I had already tied the knot in my baker’s twine and I also wanted the tag to stay very secure.
  • Hot glue your train onto the wrapping paper
  • That’s it!
