One of my dear friends had a baby girl a few weeks ago. Congratulations to her! Unfortunately, she had to cancel her baby shower in a nearby town and I wasn't able to give her her present. Phooey. It's been sitting in my desk chair for ... um ... a long time.
When I finally got around to packing everything up (it was a bunch of bath stuff), I realized I could turn the box into a sort of bathtub! Completely useless? Possibly. Fun? Definitely!
I have no idea if the box actually arrived the way I packed it (I'm looking at YOU, creepy post office guy), but I thought it was worth a shot.
I took a box and lined it with aqua tissue paper like so:
|Behold, my genius-ness.|
|Everything you see here is from Target.|
And then I used more tissue paper for the "waves". I took opposite corners of each piece and rolled them in opposite directions, then laid it across the top.
|Makes me want to talk like a pirate. Too bad I suck at it. Arghggghh.|
Finally, I added some curly ribbon "bubbles" and put the rubber ducky on top.
Then I added a card and taped it all up.
Like I said, I have no idea if the duck sank or swam, but at least the present (finally) got shipped!
Hopefully Camryn enjoys bath time as much as T does!
Hooray for the opportunity to splash an insane amount of water all over the place!
