Minecraft wrapping ((CREEPER)) - BONUS head you can wear!

Never heard of Minecraft? Well, it's a game about placing blocks to build anything you can imagine. At night monsters come out so you better have a shelter. I've watched hours of this game until I usually fall asleep. The elevator lullaby background music always gets me. 

Anyway, my son loves it and so do many of his friends. This was a gift box I helped my son make.

This is a Creeper...what's a Creeper? It's a hostile mob that will ambush players and explode, causing damage to the player and the surrounding blocks and entities. Oh dear! I can't tell you the Disney princesses but I know all the names of Minecraft, COD, Marvel, etc. Mom of boys :)



Found this shirt and band on Amazon. My son LOVED it and was so happy this was the gift he was giving. Always a nice feeling when you know someone will love what you picked out. 


      



We just happened to have a perfectly square box! YAY!!! As an extra detail we filled it with different shades of green tissue paper. 


I printed a sample creeper picture and thought of using paper to cover the box but the squares were not exact and I couldn't get them exact for anything. Each one was just a little different...UGH!!! New plan....

I knew I had different shades of green in this marker set

Creeper colors!!!

Drew the face and colored it in

Measured lines evenly on the box to make mini squares



Then he started coloring :)


I sealed the box with hot glue on the top and had them open the present from the bottom. Now you just use an exacto knife and cut out the black squares and you have a CREEPER HEAD you can wear!!!!






Thank you for stopping by!
