Dashing DIY Gift Wrap

Whether your gifts are large or small, make a big impression with wrapping ideas that totally wow!

Here’s how to wrap like a pro. (The secrets? Not too much paper, double-sided tape, and cute accents!)

To Do:

1- Lay paper print-side-down and place your fab gift in middle.

2- Pull up sides of paper, guesstimating where they’ll meet in the middle; cut accordingly.

3- Fold sides over the box, securing seam in center with clear tape. Fold paper over and stick using double-sided tape.

4- On one end of box, flatten paper from both sides against box, creating triangles above and below. Crease triangle edges.

5- Fold top triangle down, then lift bottom triangle over that one and tape in place.

6- Repeat Steps 4 and 5 on other end of box.

7- Wrap ribbon (or twine) lengthwise across front of box, bring to back and twist so ribbon spans box width. Bring to front, knot and tie bow.

8- Give!
