It’s finally that time of the year where gifts are being exchanged, in a neck-breaking pace, to show your gratitude towards one another. While one would close an eye for a gift that is unwrapped and simply placed in a paper bag to a colleague whom you rarely speak to, do the same for your loved ones and you’re likely to raise more than just an eyebrow.
To present a gift to your beloved ones without wrapping will most likely to come across as insincere. Because if you have the financial resources to buy a gift, why not the time to wrap it as well? While there are over-the-counter wrapping services, a self-wrapped gift adds that extra touch of warmth to your present.
Still, there is no need to crack your head over different dozen of ways to wrap your gift. Even though, one is encouraged to try out novel approach, it is much better to hone your skills on the basic way to wrap one before moving on to a more daring method.
Here we share with you one of the simplest ways to bundle up that gift:
A pair of scissors
- Place the wrapping paper on a flat surface. Make sure you have enough paper to cover the entire gift. Cut off extra paper if necessary.
- Place the gift in the middle of the paper. Bring the paper from one long side of the gift up to the middle of it. Place the other side of the paper to cover the gift. Make sure they hug your gift smoothly and tape them.
- To close the ends, face one of the open ends and fold the right and left edges and push it in to form flaps.
- Fold the top flap down tightly and tape.
- Fold the bottom flap tightly over the top flap and tape.
- Repeat on the other end.
- Try out different colours or patterns of wrapping paper to electrify the gift.
- If your gift is irregular in shape, wrap it by placing it in a empty box instead.
