Bearing Gifts

You are never too old to get an adorable stuffed animal for Valentine’s Day especially if it is used to hold a gift. There is an abundance of cute plush friends in stores this time of year that would be perfect to use for this gift presentation. I used a bear with long arms and I added Velcro to the paws so they would lock together to hug present. I made the gift box reusable by decorating only the lid, accented with a pretty bow and a tiny bear to make it even more lovable.

Decorate the top of a cardboard jewelry box with a piece of decorative paper — I used cardstock weight scrapbooking paper and attached it with craft glue.  You can cover up a store logo printed on the lid with this technique. Make a decorative bow with ribbon (like the one I made here — click for instructions) and attach a fun accent piece.  The bear I used was from the baby shower section at the craft store and I added a rhinestone  heart to make it sweet.

Attach ribbon around the edge of the lid with craft glue to give the box a nice tailored look.

velcro

Find a stuffed animal with long arms and attach velcro on each of the paws. You can use peel and stick velcro or hand stitch it onto the paws to secure.
