ARE YOU PREPARED FOR THE INVAAAASIONNNN?

PREPARE YOURSELVES!

PREEEEPAAAAAREEEEE!





Why yes, that is a giant dinosaur monster attacking a city.  The dinosaur is my brother's present, two giant stuffed animal fish.  The tank is my dad's and was some movies and an MP3 player.  The plane is also my brother's and is a calendar.  My mom's is a portable DVD player and digital camera and is in the building!

I went the...uh... stylish (?) route, and also recycled boxes, scraps of paper, paper towel tubes, tin cans, and all kinds of other stuff to make the shapes!  I cut mailing envelopes open and used the white side to wrap the plane and used the tinfoil I had used to bake Xmas cookies on to wrap the bottom of DINOMONSTER.  The spikes on DINOMONSTER are made from cutting apart those cardboard pieces you get with men's work shirts.

Closeups!

Ricky and the DinoMonster size each other up! (Ricky is 6'6" tall)


My mom and her building! (My mom is 5"5" tall)


My dad and the tank!


Ricky and the plane of doooom!



Tearing apart all my hard work:




Lastly, the plane.  While opening it, my brother couldn't find the present inside!  The first thing he did was pull of the winds and set them aside - which is where the present was!  Haha...



And finally, the 57' Chevy Spongebob Getaway Car!  With REAL working headlights!  I used old lamp parts, boxes, and tons of other stuff to make it! 


Ricky sitting in (on the other side of) his getaway car!


The working lights!



You can all thank my family for defeating the EEEEVIL DINOMONSTER.  Without them, you would all be DEAD!

DEAD, I TELL YOU!

THANK.

THEM.

I really like the theme idea. Great job making all the Present's work for a part of the theme and the creativity in their wrapping. Awesome job.

Thanks, everyone!  I'm glad you're enjoying the post Cheesy  I had tons of fun wrapping everything and we had lots of fun tearing it all down!  Since my parents are moving, they've taken all of the used wrapping paper and reusing it AGAIN to pack a bunch of their stuff for the move, so there's even super extra recycling!  Hooray!

Thanks!  It really was fun Smiley  In the last few years, I've also wrapped them as different things that are themed to things they like.  Like one year I wrapped all of my brother's presents in a gig TV box and used construction paper to make it look like spongebob!  Smiley  I wish I had pictures!  It makes everything just a little more exciting.

i just learned this in my anthro course and i think that it really applies to this...
a gift or present is something that you can buy from walmart which was mass produced...
a possession is a girt or present that it made more personal with thought behind it, gift wrapping, and so forth...
your crafty wrapping has made these possessions more personal (and not to mention fun)...
great job!
