How to beautifully pack a gift with your own hands
Meet on the clothes, and see off on the mind - so sounds the famous Russian proverb. This directly applies to gifts. Seeing a beautifully wrapped gift, any person will be sincerely happy. In fact, it's not difficult to pack a gift beautifully and quickly, most importantly follow the basic steps of this project.
We will need:
- wrapping paper;
- Double-sided tape;
- gift in the box;
- ribbon for decoration.
If you have never packed gifts before, then before using expensive wrapping paper, practice packing the gift in a newspaper or magazine. So you can understand if there is enough paper, see how accurately and smoothly the folds are produced, how to hold the scotch.
Measure the length, width and height of the gift box. Be sure to add a few centimeters to the bends. To determine the correct size of the wrapping paper, use the following formulas:
Length: 2 * (the length of the box + the height of the box + the thickness of the decorative strips);
Width: 2 * (box width + height of the box).
Spread the wrapping paper on an even surface and cut out the required dimensions.
To form decorative strips, place the wrapping paper face down and make an even bend at the desired location (as shown in the photo below). Leave the folding position about 1 see and form the second fold in the opposite direction. So you have a small crease.
Make several such folds. Make sure that they are the same width. To do this, in advance, use the ruler and pencil to mark the desired width.
Using adhesive tape, fix the bends on the back of the wrapping paper.
Turn the box upside down and place it on the folds. Wrap the box about one-third the bottom. Then wrap the remainder of the bottom with another piece of paper, so that the top edge of the paper covers the bottom on 1. See on the bottom sheet to glue the double-sided tape, remove the protective layer from the tape and glue with the top edge of the paper, cut off excess paper.
If there was not enough paper to the edge of the box, it's okay, the main thing is enough to close the bottom edge of the paper.
Fold the short edges with the envelope, the ends to the top of the box. Pay attention, if the tips will go to the top of the package, then it will not be very nice. To avoid this, try cutting off excess paper or bending the tip inward. Only after everything is properly formed, you can fix the folds with adhesive tape, first inside the side parts of the envelope, then the tip.
That's all! It remains only to wrap the gift with colorful bright ribbon, tie a bow and hand it to a loved one.
