how to wrap a gift

my wedding gift proved quite tricky to wrap up so instead of paper around it i went for the box approach.
i did not factor in the pointyness (is that a real word even?) of the album and how tall it was. 
i blithely bought a papier mache hat box from spotlight presuming it would fit.
i even decorated it with beautiful newsprint and love letter dsp
and then i attempted to put the gift inside....
it did fit sideways but it stuck out a bit on top...
so i added a whole heap of red cellophane and a nice big thick black and white ribbon
and made it look like it was supposed to not fit.

yes that is a doiley on the top!

so that was our gift to the newlyweds.

cheers ears
