Step 1: Materials

yarn (any color)
tape ( clear or duct tape)
gift wrap ( optional)
pencil or pen

Step 2: The Outline

So you are going to draw the outline of a cube. It is hard to explain so I supplied a picture. You will want the box to be the size of the gift. You also want all your boxes on the layout for the cube to be about the same size.

Step 3: Decorate

there are many ways to decorate this. you can color, use duct tape, or even cut out gift wrap and paste it on to the diagram. I will show you one decorated diagram I made.

Step 4: Cut

use the scissors to cut out the diagram like the picture shown.

Step 5: Lable

if it is a gift for someone you want to label it. so put the label on before we continue.

Step 6: Yarn

connect the edges like in the pictures. Make sure you leave one side open.

Step 7: Yarn

use yarn to make hanger and closer. I used pictures to show how. If you can't get it to close you might have to put tape at the end.

Step 8: Inserting Gift

open the box, insert the gift, and reclose the box.

Step 9: Hang It Up

just hang it on the tree and your done.

Step 10: Holds

this can hold earrings, pictures, cards, and light weighted gifts.

    You should show what kinds of gifts the paper can hold. Depending on the gift the box can brake.
