Love the look of a neatly wrapped gift but can’t quite manage to get it right? We broke it down for you.
Somehow, this important life skill is not included in any curriculum of childhood, but eventually you grow up and want to present a nice gift. With a few simple steps, you’ll have a nicely wrapped package that you can dress up further any way you’d like.
Want some gift-wrapping inspiration and options? See this post!
You want the longer side to overlap just a little – maybe the width of a finger. On the shorter side, you should use the height of the gift to determine how long the paper should be. This can be trimmed down later so you have a bit of leeway. After wrapping a few gifts, you’ll get to feel how long it should be. Note: Using wrapping paper with lines on the back makes this job MUCH easier. Your paper will be cut straighter and more accurately to size.
Now flip the package over and admire your ready-to-impress gift! At this point you can decorate the package or not. Add ribbons, bows or a message. Or glue on some chocolate Chanukah gelt for a bonus treat! We have gift wrap inspiration in this post.
