Step 1: Materials

What you will Need:

Your gift

Step 2: Step 1

Get your gift and place it on any type of wrapping paper.  Cut about 5 inches away from your gift. 

Step 3: Step 2

Choose any two sides you want to tape over the gift (I chose the longer sides because they can cover up the box).  Tape both of the wrapping paper's edges at the top of the package

Step 4: Step 3

Your next step is to do the sides.  Look at the placing of the wrapping paper on each sides.  Is the paper too long (such as the paper is all the way down to the ground)?  If it is, trim a little off until the paper is about in the middle of the package (do it also to the other side).  Take the paper and tape it down on the package.  Make sure to tape it down tight. 

Step 5: Step 4

Take one side of the wrapping paper and fold it down.  Tape the edge of the paper that isn't touching the ground.  If you don't understand, look at the pictures shown.  Repeat with the other edge of the wrapping paper.

Step 6: Step 5

Take the tip of the wrapping paper and fold it straight up against the package.  Tape the top of the "triangle".  Repeat steps 3-5 on the other side of the package.  Then your done! :)
