Here are some wrapping tips before you continue:
- Look at the shape of the present and decide what type of wrapping is best to use. Using same roll of paper for all gifts does not works well on all shapes and sizes. For simple shapes like books DVDs and perfumes use thick paper. For awkward packages like bottles of wine and children toys, use a more flexible material such as tissue paper, cellophane or even fabric.
- Wrap a ribbon around the gift and then use the length of ribbon to measure how much paper you need. Trim off any excess so you don’t mummify the present.
- Choose tape that blends in with the paper or use double sided tape that can’t be seen at all.
- Spice up your Christmas present with anything appropriate to festive season.
