Gift Wrapping 101

{Tiffany Bow: Coming Wednesday}

Boxes are probably the easiest things to wrap, so if you’re giving an awkwardly shaped gift, putting it in a box first is the easiest solution. The hard edges allow you to create a tidy and professional-look.

Step 1: Place the box face down on the paper, and pull up the short side and secure it with a piece of tape.

 Step 2: Fold the other side in about an inch.

 Step 3: Secure the folded side to the paper that you already secured down.

Step 4: Turn the present right way up and fold down the overhanging paper against the side of the box that remains exposed.

Step 5: Press in two side folds, smoothing the edges to give a clean finish. Next fold the bottom flap up to cover all the edges creating an envelope effect.

 Step 6: Secure with tape. Turn over and repeat the process for the other side.

  1. I actually like wrapping presents better than sticking them in gift bags Picking out the wrappings are my favorite part!


  2. Nicely done! I'm pretty particular about my gift wrapping also so I can really appreciate a perfectly wrapped box!


  3. I love that you did this! So smart, because some people (definitely including myself) seriously struggle wrapping gifts! And how appropriate, right before the holidays! 🙂
