Step 1: Material

What you will Need:

A drawing
Your gift

Step 2: Step 1

Place your gift onto the drawing.  Make sure the side you want to show off for the wrapping is facing the ground.  Take one of the sides of the paper and tape it on top of the gift.  Repeat on the other side.

Step 3: Step 2

Now its time to do the sides.  If you have extra paper hanging off, trim off a little bit of the paper so that the paper folds down to about the middle of the gift.  See the picture for more detail.  Repeat on the other side.  Tape the paper down on the gift tightly.  Next, fold one of the edges down to the ground (picture will show you where exactly to fold).  Tape the edge where it isn't touching the ground (picture shows).  Repeat on the other edge.  Take the "triangle" (the flap that is left) and fold it against the gift.  Tape the top of it.  Repeat steps 1 and 2 on the other side.  Then you are done! :)

    Sunday comics were reagrded as gift wrapping paper. The rest of the paper was for wrapping garbage. Only low lifes, we were told, tossed their garbage directly in the can. A dirty garbage can was considered a sign of a badly managed house.
