Measure Twice, Cut Once Measure your wrapping paper carefully. You should have enough to fully cover the gift with a slight overlap. If you’re not sure about the size, it’s always better to have a little extra than to come up short. Use a ruler to make straight, even cuts for a professional finish.

Neat and Tidy Folds Place the gift in the center of the  paper and fold the sides over, ensuring they meet in the middle with no  excess paper. Secure the seams with tape. When folding the ends, create  neat triangles at the corners to eliminate bulk and make a cleaner  finish.

The Perfect Seal Using clear tape is essential for achieving a polished look.  Invisible tape ensures your wrapping appears seamless. Be generous with  tape at the seams and make sure the paper is securely fastened to the  gift.

Add a Personal Touch Enhance your gift by adding a personalized gift tag or label. You can  buy pre-made tags or create your own. This is the perfect opportunity  to add a heartfelt message or a clever hint about what’s inside.

Ribbons and Bows The right ribbon can take your gift to the next level. Use a wide,  fabric ribbon for an elegant touch or opt for a colorful satin ribbon  for a festive feel. Make sure your ribbon is long enough to wrap around the gift with some excess for tying. Finish off with a beautiful bow.

Get Creative Feel free to get creative with your  wrapping. Consider layering different papers, using decorative tape, or adding a sprig of holly or a small ornament to make your gifts stand  out.
