Step 1: Materials

What you will Need:

Your Gift

Step 2: Step 1

Place your gift onto the newspaper.  Take one side of the newspaper and tape it on top of the gift.  If you have extra newspaper when you fold the newspaper over, trim a little bit of the newspaper off.  I had to trim some of it off.  Repeat with the other side. 

Step 3: Step 2

Now its time for the sides.  If you fold the sides down and there is a little bit of newspaper hanging down (such as touching the ground), trim some of it off until when you fold the paper down, it ends up to be about in the middle of the gift.  Tape the paper against the gift.  Repeat with the other side.  Take one of the edges and crease it.  Repeat with the other side.

Step 4: Step 3

Take one of the edges and fold it (picture shows where to fold it).  Tape the top of the crease (the one that isn't touching the ground).  Repeat with the other edge. 

Step 5: Step 4

Take the flap that is on the ground and fold it against the gift (picture shows how to do this).  Tape the top of the "triangle".  Repeat steps 2-4 on the other side.  Then you are done! :)
