I recommend doing this on a hard surface like a table or counter. I was lazy and did it on the floor lol
Gather your supplies
First measure the paper you are going to need
Cover you box, tightly, with the rolled paper
When you are done measuring, cut the paper where it meets at the roll
Center your box on the paper
Optional: fold one side of the paper for a clean look
Make sure to have your tape ready. I stick my tape on my arm for easy access. You should only need 3 pieces.
Wrap the side without the fold on the box tightly.
Now wrap the folded side over the box,tightly, and tape the paper together
Here's the tape, best to do it vertically. Sorry if you can't see it.
Here is how it should look
Now to fold the edges
Fold down the edge.
Repeat this on the edge next to the folded one.
You should get a triangle shape like this
Optional: fold down the pointed triangle for a clean look
Fold your triangle side up
Tape the side down and TADA
Repeat steps 13-21 on the other side of your box
Finished wrapping. Remember to add your bows, ribbons, and tags!
