Wrapping & Packing

My daughter was invited for a party of one of her friends, who asked for money instead of a present. Not the most fun present to give, but after a bit of searching at Pinterest, I found this great idea:

I just love how the lizard's party hat is sticking out of the box!

The lizard is from Schleich, who makes lifelike animals. It was the only animal I could find with its beak open, which was necessary to put paper money in it.

I found this idea here.


  1. What a clever idea. I will have to check out that link for a birthday coming up soon.

  2. Cute! I love how the hat sticks out too! Very clever!

  3. Very cool idea Liz! Here were we live, they all always collect money for birthdays to then buy a bigger present, which I really like. I've made special envelopes before to make the money look a bit nicer, but I like your idea way better! The Schleich Lizard is fabulous, I love Schleich animals!!! I'm super happy you gave us Sweet Inspiration this weekend by linking up, Thank you!

  4. What a creative, cool idea.
    You are so talented!
