If you love design, you will agree with me when I say that wrapped gifts are art — the best short-lived fabric you can play with colors, textures, and designs that are inspiring at the moment. Who knows? There is something scientific about this gift of how to sell gifts, and in the words of Pablo Picasso, “You have to learn the rules as a pro, so you can break them as an artist.”
So, before you buy any wrapping paper and ribbon in the store, let’s get back to the essentials, right? Scroll under the step-by-step guide to wrap a gift perfectly.
When it comes to wrapping gifts, having a large office space can be a great help. The working table in our new craft room makes it easy to assemble all our belongings, as well as having enough space to produce large wrap paper.
One of the most important things you can do to keep your gift clean is to start with the right wrap. This is the hardest part to do (and the hardest part to explain!) So read it carefully.
10 Steps to Creating a Good Gift:
1. Open your wrapper and look down, and place your gift on top of it. If your gift is like a rectangle, connect the long edges of the box to match the end of the roll. Fold the end of the paper over the top of the gift until it wraps around the box. Write when the end meets the roll paper, and add 1 inch. This shows the width of your paper.
2. Cut the mark from bottom to top. We like to use the Sugar Paper roll from Target because it has a band on the back.
You need to have a roll that is long enough to wrap around your gift but is too long.
3. Make sure the box is still in place. Next, fold the edge of the paper to make it more than half the size of the box. For example, if your box is 6 inches long, you want the paper to measure 3.5 inches. Do the same on the edge of the box, and cut.
4. Now you need to have a piece of parchment paper that is good enough to wrap around your gift box. From left to right, the paper should wrap around the box. From top to bottom, the paper should come between the sides of the box.
5. Wrap the left and right of the paper up and over the top of the box to fit in the middle. Drag the trained paper, and secure it with tape.
6. At the open end, fold the paper in the corner as they see and fold it. Write this down in the box for a closer look.
7. Again, make a paper as a picture.
8. Fold the two ends as they appear. Fold the bottom strap and tie tightly, then fold in place.
9. Repeat on the other side. Then come back and enjoy your great photography career!
10. Add a ribbon or bow of your choice.
