A Bundle of Joy

What You Need:

A clear, plastic ornament ball (I purchased mine at Hobby Lobby, where they're available beyond Christmas)

Two small sized prizes that will fit in the ornament (I used small nail polish and a cute flower lip gloss I found at Michaels)

Three colors of crepe paper

Flat and flexible prizes. I used a cupcake stencil, rhinestone body art and hairbands–all found in Michael's $1 bins

Ribbon

Double-sided tape

Bundle of Joy printable.

Directions:

Put your two small prizes in the ornament ball and close. Completely wrap the ball with your first crepe color. Make sure the entire ball is covered. Then add another layer to smooth out the crepe paper. Add your next prize. In this case, the hairbands were really easy to keep in place. Then wrap with your next color. And again, add another layer to smooth it out.

One by one, add each of your prizes... you get the picture! I ended with yellow, since we didn't know the baby's gender. Wrap the finished ball with a pretty ribbon, securing it with double-sided tape. Print out the Bundle of Joy label, stick it on and you're done!
