4a-Pretending to Craft

(Sorry this post is late. Better late than never.)

Since last week was my birthday, and I found these photos for a post I  never wrote last year, this post just happened. Even though I made this gift for my moms on Mother’s Day 2013. Whatever.


  • Gift card of your choice
  • Small gift box
  • Large box
  • Helium filled balloons
  • Wrapping paper
  • Scissors
  • Tape
  • Ribbon/Bow
SURPRISE! Box | Lazy Lady

Place your gift card in the little box.

Wrap your big box, but DON’T WRAP IT SHUT THOUGH!

Place your little box inside the big box. Then fill the box with balloons! I went to the Dollar Tree for mine.

Close the box and tie it up with a ribbon!

Then you get to SURPRISE! them! My mom started fussing at me for getting them such a large gift and then burst out laughing when the balloons spilled out. Mr. LL and I even pretended we both had to carry it in and put it on the table because it sooo heavy.

I hope you enjoy this little trick!
