Birthday Gift - Under $10.00

My son had a birthday party to attend this past weekend and so at the last minute I threw together a gift.  I love giving personal gifts and I think this one came out sooo cute.  Got everything at Michael's and all for under $10.00.

I first started with a lap tray.

Personalized it with my Cricut and some vinyl.

Added some Cars 2 activity books, crayons, harmonica and dry erase board.  
All found at Michael's for 40% off.

Wrapped it in cellophane and ribbon.

For less than $10.00, this gift looks like it came from a very high end toy store.  

I did the same thing when one of my best friends had major surgery a few years ago.  It is perfect to lay in bed and put your laptop on it or do paperwork when you can't get out of bed.  

Have a great day!
