Today you will learn how to present ordinary present in an unusual way. Wrap in shiny paper in a flower and tie with a bow - this, of course, is cute and beautiful. But how to make packaging not only beautiful, but also functional? See step-by-step instruction.

Step 0. Surely, on the Internet you have come across various models of toys. More often these are funny little animals or characters of famous cartoons. The advantages of these layouts:
1. Their network is not one thing;
2. All that is required of you is to select, print and cut.
The more stable your toy, the better, especially if the gift is heavy enough: for example, a giraffe with long paper legs is unlikely to withstand a few chocolates.

Step 1. Hereinafter, “ordinary hare” will be considered as packaging, to which, if desired, a number of accessories can be attached. For example, a carrot on which you write a congratulation.
Useful information: In the photo below, dense matte photo paper of A1 format, on which 3 layouts fit. It is not necessary to use photo paper - ordinary paper is also suitable, but weighing 250-300 grams. If you are not sure, then you can go, for example, to the printing industry, where you probably know what it is about.

Step 2. After you have printed the layout of the desired color / size / shape / density, you need to cut it out and fold the toy according to the indicated folds.

Step 3. Collect the packaging and at the same time begin to gradually stack the gift / presents.

Step 4. So that in the future the packaging does not suffer and retains its original appearance, stick Velcro on the side (or where it is more suitable according to your layout). Next, in a similar manner, the second part of the Velcro should be glued. This kind of clasp will turn out.

Useful information: Velcro can be found:
a) At home in the old grandmother's chest
b) In the hardware store
c) In the hardware store.

Step 5. At the end, you can also decorate the packaging with additional accessories as you like, or as the occasion requires. For example, for the hare in the photo below, a nice Christmas hat was made separately from colored paper and cotton wool.
