So, you've found the perfect gift. Now you just have to wrap it. How, you ask? I'll tell you.

Somehow several years ago I become the family gift wrapper, and have had quite a bit of experience since then. So here are a few things I've learned. I hope they help!

Also, I've got a few different decorating ideas in the last step.

Step 1: Measure and Cut

Start by setting the present in the center of your wrapping paper, and make sure that you have enough so that you can take at least two sides and make them meet in the middle with a little to spare. The other two sides do not have to do this. Then cut your wrapping paper.

Now, flip the gift upside down on the wrong side of the wrapping paper, so that the top is facing the plain side.
