Step 1: Set Up the Wrapping Paper
Step 2: Create Pull-Tab
Using your scissors, make 1/4 inch snips well to the side of the ribbon. This will coerce the paper to rip in that direction when the rip-cord is pulled.
Use a bit of tape to secure the ribbon to the flap created by the slits, then trim the ribbon so that is no longer sticks out.
Finish wrapping the sides of the present as normal
Step 3: Done!
Alternatives are, you can tape the ribbon to the box if you don't care if it gets torn, and you can leave the ribbon sticking out and use it as the pull-tab.
Check my other instructables for ideas on homemade gifts that you can proceed to wrap with a rip-cord!
Merry Christmas and have a Happy New Year!!
