The Gift of a Vacation

I've heard of people giving loved ones trips and cruise tickets as gifts, but how do you wrap those? We had a similar predicament this past Christmas. We wanted to give Dan's parents a trip to Disney (along with us, of course) but how to wrap it... As you can see from previous posts, we try to wrap gift certificates creatively. So, this is the cool thing that we came up with...

I bought a brag book at the craft store, along with a few Disney-themed items. Most of the paper and stickers that I used came from my stash, so it was relatively inexpensive to make. (I learned from the Picfolio experiment not to use embellishments. Even though I didn't, the extra paper made the book too fat to close.) After receiving the gift, Larry and Jean removed all of the pages and took pictures of them.

In order to prevent the recipients from cheating and peeking, we even taped pages together so that they didn't know where the trip was going to be until they made it to that page. We are just so sneaky... We saved this gift for the very end, and they read the entire poem out loud. At certain intervals they had additional smaller gifts to open including a guide book, admission tickets, and scrapbooking stickers. It was fun to make and even more enjoyable to see Jean and Larry get so excited about it!

We would have more pictures of the excited couple, but once again, Dan's camera is broken.
