wrapping 101

I purchased a 'pull along puppy' from Phillips Toy Mart for Jack's 1st birthday party. The theme was dog days of summer, and from the pictures his mom sent, it looks like he had a blast! 

The pull puppy was challenging to wrap, with open sides on both the top and bottom. My solution was to secure the sides with thick stock cardboard paper, which I had leftover from some Epson paper packs. This gave the present the hard edges I needed to get crisp corners on the gift wrapping, while also preventing the paper from caving in on the sides.
