How to Wrap the Perfect Holiday Gift

gift wrapping paper galore at Paper Plus

Ribbons and tissue and toppers, oh my! It’s the time of year when we are inundated with questions on gift wrapping so we thought we’d put together an anyone-can-do-it guide for wrapping your holiday gifts. Come on in and we’ll help you pick out the perfect paper, gift bags, stickers, bows and cards– everything you need to ensure your gifts stand out!


All the gift wrapping supplies you'll needGather wrapping materials

All you need are scissors, tape, wrapping paper, a bow or some kind of festive frill and, of course, the present. If your gift isn’t already in a box, we have gift boxes of every size and shape to choose from. Choosing a box with flat surfaces will make wrapping it neatly much easier.
Pro Tip: Use scissors that have only been used to cut paper, if you can. Sharp blades = clean-cut lines and better looking presents.

Measure out how much paper to cut

Put your present on the wrapping paper at an angle, instead of even with the edge. You want enough paper so that it extends comfortably past each corner when you lay the gift on it diagonally. Arranging the box diagonally saves paper and looks neater too, because the folds aren’t on the edges.

Fold the wrapping paper on each side of the present

Fold the bottom part up and fold and tuck in one side. Then fold the side up and over and secure it with a piece of tape. Make sure to pull it snug before taping, to keep it looking neat.

Stand the box up and repeat folding to the other side

Tuck in the other corner and fold the paper to cover the top of the present. Again, you’ll want to pull the paper tight so it’s snug around the gift. Then flip it over to the other side.

Pinch and fold up the remaining two sides

Tuck in the remaining corners and fold the side then the top part. Just tuck in the corner of the top flap and secure it with another piece of tape.
