Perfect Gift Wrapping Tutorial, Part 2: Wrapping Your Gift
Are you guys excited? I can feel it! Let’s get started:
Turn both your cut piece of wrapping paper AND your box 90 degrees. Place the box so the long edge is neatly lined up along the top edge of your wrapping paper. Position the box so that you can fold the wrapping paper up the short side of the box and it extends past the top edge by about an inch.
Wrap the box around the long side with the folded edge you just made on top. Look at the top and bottom edges of the paper–they should line up as cleanly as possible. If you shift the box, double check that it is still centered on the paper, and you have an equal amount of paper overhang on the short sides of the box.
Tomorrow is our final session–Part 3: Finishing Touches. I’ll show you how to tie the ribbon on and make pretty bow.
