Step 1: Get the Stuff & Plan It Out
get your: present, tape/scissors, and news paper ready
you might also want to grab a shoe box
Think what do you have to wrap?
Some presents will be easy to guess just by looking at their profile
You dont want to hear things shaking and rattling around so you need to pack box with paper.
Im wrapping a screw driver set, tire pressure gage, basting brush, and measuring cup. Putting them all in one box will leave my mom clueless.
Step 2: Start Wrapping
Now just wrap the present like you would any other. Make sure all your folds are nice and sharp and you dont rip the paper. For small things one sheet of paper will be easy. a shoe box sized object will need a little more then 1sheet see pic (11-12).
Start by lining up box/object with the center fold and taping it.
On opposite side repeat. And tape to side. '
If you need to add another sheet now is the time to do it. Line them up and tape together.
Step 3: Finish It Up
now just finish the end off like it was normal gift wrap.
