Used Mary Engelbreit wrapping paper. Bonded garments to colored construction paper and then cut out with cuticle scissors. Made sure to use various colors because I wanted the colors on the backs of the garments to vary. Made clothes line (poles of balsa wood), indoor/outdoor carpeting for turf. The recipient has ducks, so you'll notice ducks on the grass. Used music box with duck "quacking" noise. Package took approximately 15-20 hours to wrap.

Clear cellaphane was used for water; green cellaphane was used for land. This gift displays a pleated top.
