this tutorial is in 2 separate posts, keep scrolling to get the rest.
last year i had so many compliments on my nicely wrapped gifts that i decided to do my first ever tutorial. how to wrap a pretty package.
start out by measuring out how much paper you need. i normally err on the side of caution and cut a LITTLE extra not too much extra though.
bring the other side around, pull it taut, but not too tight and fold the end of the wrapping paper under, this creates a nice clean edge.
use one piece of tape in the middle.
heres where it tends to get messy, nothing a little practice wont cure. trim off any excess paper from the ends, the paper should extend no further than the edge of the box or a little less.
