Gift wrapping has to be one of my favorite things about the holidays. I do love choosing and buying gifts but it's definitely the best part of it all.
Next I wrap the box with two sheets of tissue paper, folding the corners just like I would the wrapping paper itself,(which I'm about to show you how) *so when cutting the paper around the box you need to make sure that it covers both the flat surface and the sides, to make sure you have enough (and not too much) just lift the sides up and see if they reach the top of the box, if they do then you're good* So the first thing to do is fold over the sides of the surface and tape them down. Then push down the part coming over the top of the box.(photo2) Next pull the corners in and flatten part of it to the side of the box, this will automatically force you to flatten the other part of it flat on the table or floor(wherever you're wrapping) adjust the top peices to make it as flat as possible, then repeat on the other side. Now it should look like the 4th photo.
Happy Holidays and Happy Wrapping :)
