As we celebrate and enjoy the Christmas season, a lot of us plan to give out some gifts to loved ones to show our appreciation and love for them. One challenge faced when it comes to presenting gifts is how to wrap them.
It can look quite complicated and can be a frustrating process if you do not know what you are doing. Besides, if you have a number of gifts to wrap and limited time, it can feel downright impossible. This need to wrap presents in record time was probably why this technique is trending.
Below is a Japanese trick for wrapping your presents within 30 seconds.
Step 1: Situate the gift diagonally, not straight. You will want it set in such position that the paper can go all the way up the side when folded.
Step 2: Pull that same side up so that a crease forms at a right angle along with the corner of the box.
Step 3: Using your fingers, fold perpendicular to the crease so that you’re creating a flap. It can be a little tricky but once you figure it out, you are basically almost done.
Step 4: Pull up the bottom side to cover the entirety of that side of the box. Picture yourself wrapping in a circular movement.
Step 5: Fold in the broad side’s crease to make another flap. The flap doesn’t need to be perfect because the other paper will cover it.
Step 6: The broad side will fold up and you’ll tape it, leaving you with just one side left.
Step 7: Fold the indent/flap thing on BOTH sides of the remaining end, then fold that flap up as well.
Step 8: Tape it up and you are done.
