I'm taking a bit of a risk, as I have yet to give this present to the recipient... but they'll have it within the week, and they don't even know this forum exists, so I SHOULD be safe.
Every year we do stuff like this to each other (making the gifts hard to open), so this year, I decided to kick it up a couple of notches. As for the gift itself, the person receiving it has been trying to find it for over a year, and even ebay doesn't list it. It cost me a pretty penny in the end, but I'm getting my money's worth out of this for sure
I photographed the whole wrapping process... enjoy!
Edit: Although I don't show it, I actually used 3 whole rolls of tape (2 packing, 1 duct) not including the regular scotch tape I used.
