Christmas is coming, so I thought I would do a blogpost on gift-wrapping. This post describes how to wrap a box. These boxes can be filled with whatever you like. I bought the boxes in a shop, they were not expensive, and wrapped them with Christmas wrapping paper. You can also decorate these boxes using ribbons or Christmas labels. You can use crepe paper or clear wrapping paper to line your box if you wish. Fill your gift box(es) and place them under the Christmas tree🎄
You will need:
- (Christmas) Wrapping paper
- Sticky tape
- Empty carboard box
Place the lid on the paper and cut wrapping paper
Place the lid of the box faced down on your wrapping paper, leaving the paper attached to roll. Use scissors to cut paper along one side, making a wide enough sheet to cover both sides of the box. There should be an inch extra to fold over each side.
Fold the long sides up and over the lid
Tape the wrapping paper to the inside edge of the lid as pictured and repeat on the other side.
Repeat on all sides. Take the end sections and fold just like wrapping a regular box.
Repeat these steps with the box.
Cut wrapping paper
Place the box on the wrapping paper and cut the wrapping paper, making sure there is enough to cover each side of the box.
Fold the paper along the edges and tape to the sides of the box.
Repeat for all four sides.
