1. Gift wrapping

First, wrap the gift in a wrapping paper of your choice (preferably one that matches the occasion).

2. Make a mini garland

Now cut out a few triangles from paper. These are then glued to a piece of string or yarn, then the two ends are each glued to a toothpick. The mini garland is then attached to the side.

3. Attach model figures.

The last thing to attach is the minis, the mothers with the prams and the tufts of grass can then be attached to the gift as you like simply with a normal craft glue. You are welcome to additionally attach a sequin ribbon.
