Any Christmas gift can look like a million bucks when wrapped up festively. Color coordinate your gifts and ribbons for a well-designed look. If you plan on storing gifts under your Christmas tree a while before giving them away, choose wrapping paper that matches your tree or home decor. Gather your supplies and work on a clean, flat surface.
Wrap Your Gift
Unroll your wrapping paper a few feet on your flat surface. The wrapping paper needs to be wrong side up.
Center the gift on the wrapping paper.
Fold the edge of the wrapping paper over half of the package. Secure the wrapping paper onto the package. Hold it in place with tape.
Flip the gift over carefully. Pull the wrapping paper over the gift. The paper should cover the gift, wrapping it entirely with a few extra inches overlapping.
Cut the wrapping paper away from the roll. Tape the wrapping paper into place by attaching tape to the gift and paper.
Move to the side of the gift. Make a diagonal fold from the upper left corner to the lower right corner.
Make a diagonal fold from the upper right corner to the lower left corner.
Cut any excess paper from the two sides you folded in. Flip the bottom of the paper up, making a V shape. Tape the fold in place.
Do the same for the opposite side of the package.
Candy Stripe Ribbons
Place the package upside down on the flat surface. The tape side should be facing you.
Tape the end of the ribbon to the upper right corner of the package. Use double-sided tape to make the package look neat.
Wrap the ribbon around the package once carefully. Tape the ribbon securely around the back an inch or two lower than the previous ribbon.
Wrap the ribbon around the package again. Evenly space the ribbon around the package. Continue until you have a pretty candy stripe design on your package.
Clip the ribbon and secure it in place on the underside of the package. Place a fluffy red bow on the package and secure it with tape.
