I think the ad is about the size of the gift. So, if the present is small, the gift paper is tiny too.

Also would work as: The amount of paper needed to wrap-up an idea of this size.

MicroMachines has been out of the market for so many years it is mind blowing that any client is doing recent work on a dead brand. Hasbro the parent company of the brand doesn't even feature MicroMachines as one of its brands anymore. Interesting isn't it?

some of the ads that are posted are older ads. keep that in mind.

also i found that Micromachines are still sold in the UK and Europe. did a search on wikipedia.

Yeah, still... if you keep reading you'll find that wiki says: Recently, The Micro Machines brand was revived for a few years in response to the popularity of the similar Speedeez brand. Some collectors feel that the paint schemes on the new releases were not up to the standards of the classic Micro Machines. Hasbro also opted to use many fantasy castings in the revival. The revival only lasted a couple years.

I looked on Hasbro UK and no MicroMachines are presented. Also look in Hasbro Worldwide and you can see the brands sold in each region. No MicroMachines for Latin America. http://www.hasbro.com/default.cfm?page=ww

The line isn't quite connecting smartly enough for me.
Nice idea though.

Decent work. The wrapping paper could be much better though.

And why cut right in the middle and waste perfectly good wrapping paper?
Won't you need to wrap the other mini-toys?
