Wrapping holiday gifts is one of my favorite parts of Christmas! When I learned this special trick for How to Wrap a Present, it made things so much easier.
How to Wrap a Present
For this tutorial, we’ll be wrapping a rectangular box with a sheet of wrapping paper. Cut your paper to fit the box, leaving enough paper to wrap around the box lengthwise and to fold over half the box on the ends.
Wrap the paper around your box lengthwise and tape into place. Now, it’s time to close up the ends. That’s where the special trick is:
Fold the top half of the end paper down and crease it. Now, fold in both side pieces. Finally, bring up the bottom piece and tape into place.
Repeat on the other end, then add embellishments for a perfectly wrapped present!
