What materials did you use? Just LOOK at these cute boxes I found at a local thrift store! I squealed with delight. Little log boxes perfect for gift giving a hat for a boy. They were $2.00 each and in excellent shape. It is a paper mache box with these log like papers decoupaged on it. Just too cute and very well done. If you were so inclined, you could do this design right on a box with paint or markers. I would suspect a triangle box is hard to find, but you could do the same thing on a round box.

What advice would you give someone starting this project? It's all about the packaging! I get many invitations to baby showers, and often times the gift is one of my baby blankets. Sometimes, however, a smaller gift is required and this packaging makes a simple hat extra special! No gift bag for this one!
