Robot gift packaging

20130824-141616.jpg

My son was invited to his classmate’s birthday party. He chose a somewhat unusual gift (a snow cone machine and accessories) that involved a couple of boxes and bottles, which were too big and bulky for most gift bags. I was trying to figure out the best way to wrap and stack these four objects when it occurred to me that they had good robot proportions. With a bit of ingenuity and a hot glue gun, this is what I came up with. Jetsons, anyone?

What I used: boxes, thin chipboard (to wrap bottles and form legs), two paper towel tubes cut into 3 pieces each, red wrapping paper, aluminum foil, happy birthday ribbon, random metal circles for eyes (mine happen to be button backs), two (yellow) lids from vitamin bottles, small handle from vinyl bag (for antenna), party blower, scotch tape, hot glue gun/glue.
