The Gift Wrapping Hack Heard ‘Round the World

Have you seen the incredible gift wrapping hack that is currently going viral? If you haven’t, get ready to have your minds BLOWN! You have most likely been in this situation before: you’re all set up to wrap some presents with a Christmas movie on and all of your materials handy: tape, scissors, the gift, and a piece of your favorite wrapping paper… but the last piece of paper won’t fit the gift you have. In the past, you may have either found a smaller gift to use for that piece of paper or recycled it altogether. With this trick, we will show you that you won’t have to do either! 


Notice how this piece of wrapping paper is very clearly too small for this box? Follow the easy steps below to try this wrapping hack at home.

Step 1: Turn the gift on a diagonal. Make sure it is squared to the paper and that you have an even amount on either side.

Step 2: Flip up two of the corners and tape together in the middle.

Step 3: Fold in the remaining two corners. You may have to adjust how to fold so that it stays even and looks neat. 

Step 4: Tape to secure.

Step 5: Voila! You are done!

Green Tip: Recycle the kraft packaging paper you receive in your package deliveries and use it as wrapping paper.
Red Tip: Draw a festive pattern on your kraft paper to give it a holly jolly look.
