Happy Birthday Gamer

As many of you know I was in a blog hop a few weeks ago called It's A Wrap.  I had already made my door hanger when I thought of this...  I wanted to wrap up something special for my nephew.  He loves Ninjago and said that he wanted the game for his DS player.  
I wrapped the game in really bright paper that said "Happy Birthday" all over it.
I thought it would be cute to make the gift a TV and the card attached the game controller.
For the TV I used the Slumber Party.  I added pumpkin pie corduroy brads for the dials.  The cord is a satin ribbon that is round instead of flat. 
The Happy Birthday is from Once Upon a Paper.  I popped up the Happy Birthday since 3D TV is all the rage right now.  LOL!
I doodled around the shadow of the TV and on the antennas.
The game control is from Father's Day...I think.  I used my Gypsy to copy, flip and weld the shadow for the controller to make the card.  I popped up the buttons so it looks like the real deal then added the arrows and letters.
I love that I was able to take something so normal and make it stand out on the gift table.  For your next gift wrap up something up in a special and people will remember for a long time.
