Lightning McQueen Gift Box -- Packages & Recycling with the Unstampabelles

Our theme this month at the UnstampaBelles challenge is Boxes, Parcels or Bags, with the optional twist of Recycle Something. You need to follow the twist to be considered as the DT Favorite, but you only have to follow main theme to win our prize. And remember, no stamps!

I recycled an old mailing box (thanks, Amazon!) to make this Lightning McQueen Gift Box for a special 3-year-old.

I painted the box with red acrylic paint, the 99¢ kind from JoAnn's. I grabbed the eye clipart here and converted it to cut files. I drew & cut the smile by hand...obviously LOL. For the license plate, I used a clipart frame and the font Motorway by Vic Fieger. The lightning bolt is a freebie and I cut it from gold paper. I made the wheels myself in SCAL and attached with them brads so that they rotate.

I lined the box with tissue paper, and tied it with black tulle. For his gift, I made a tie-together fleece blanket. My mom is a pro at making them, but this is my first time making one in over 15 years!

I also made decorations and gift bags for the birthday party. The goodie bags follow a template from Quite Possibly Perfect Designs. The Race flag font is 101! B10 Jr by Nght's Place, the lightning bolt font is Superheterodyne by Raymond Larabie, and the race car clipart is a personal-use freebie.

Be sure to check out the fabulous projects by my teammates the UnstampaBelles this month!
