Gift wrapping doesn’t have to feel like a chore if you turn it into a fun and exciting DIY project. Take a look at the photo above and see the different amazing ways you can make your gift look like it was wrapped by a pro.
Good news is, you don’t need to undergo formal training to learn how to wrap like this. The post below teaches you how to do the one in the center. Looks nice, doesn’t it? It’s so easy you’ll wish you’ve learned about it sooner.
Here are more tips that would make your gift wrapping activity a lot more worthwhile:
- For gifts that have awkward shapes, put them in a box, tin can or any other container that would not give away what’s under the gift wrap.
- Get creative with gift tags. Instead of using those little tags that you can buy in bookstores, make your own or use printed photos of you and the person receiving the gift. That would make the gift a lot more meaningful.
- Use the right tools. This can make your job a lot easier. Be sure to use a rotary cutter and tape dispenser.
- Wrap your gifts on a hard surface like a table. Don’t work on a carpet, which makes it difficult for you to control the wrapping paper, and your other supplies.
