Long ago, when dinosaurs roamed the earth and I was in college the first time, I had a roommate who, as soon as school was out for Christmas, would rush home to a big city in the east, to her Christmas season job.  She worked in a big department store wrapping presents.  She was paid minimum wage, but she did such a good job that she paid her next semesters tuition on the tips she earned.  Not Bad.  We, her roommates begged her to teach us what she did.  So here are the rules to making an average package look great.  Let’s get started.

Step 1:

Wrapping paper (or any kind of paper)
A box to wrap (use a box whenever possible)
Oh yes, did she teach you more methods? I hope you plan on sharing!<br>sunshiine
There are loads of ways to embellish your package. I just don't have the time to add any more right now. Maybe I can get them done in time for next <br>Christmas. Thanks.
Another thing is balancing and color I have trouble with. Some people really can put something together that way. I am slowly learning though.
Oh, I know how to embellish it is the wrapping of the paper I hate to do. I always have my husband do that part. I have trouble wrapping circles and stuff like that as well. It looks OK yes but Professionals can really do it super. Maybe after the holidays you might think about sharing more about wrapping. I was actually afraid Scooch would not accept my entry. She did though. Have a super Christmas! Sunshiine
Sunshiine thanks you so much for thinking of her. You need to go see my page on how I skated out by doing some wrapping without wrapping! Too bad I did not see this first! Thanks so much for sharing and thinking of me. Have a splendorous day on me! Sunshiine
