Penguin gift wrap

1.  Wrap the box with black Oly-Fun fabric. Strong packing tape or duck tape will work, or use a low temp glue gun. Wrap the box just as you would with wrapping paper.
2. Cut a strip of Oly-Fun to make a scarf for the penguin. Cut fringe ends on the scarf, and tie it around the wrapped box.
3. Cut two white circles to make eyes, and cut an orange triangle to make a beak.  Use the sticker maker to add adhesive to the small pieces, and stick them on the penguin box. Use a black permanent marker to draw in the eyes.
