3.  1 roll brown packing paper - $1 You can also use different patterns of wrapping paper. 
4.  2 metallic sheets of card stock - .10 - .15 Use can use different colors to match paper
5.  1 fleece blanket - $3 – I made the blanket and pillow. There was enough to make several.

2.  Tape both boxes together long ways
3.  Wrap with packing or wrapping paper
4.  Hot glue card stock at foot of bed for foot board
