    Christmas is pretty exciting, eh? Good first-time 'ible.

    Please consider adding more information, like maybe measuring two sides of the gift and doubling that measurement, then adding an inch, to be sure the paper you cut will reach. Also, the "shovel" should be trimmed if the side flaps are too much larger than 1/2 the width of the gift, as otherwise they will bunch and not lie flat.

    Nice 'ible.
