With just 3 simple, step-by-step techniques, you can easily learn how to achieve amazing results every time you wrap a gift so that your presents look like they've been wrapped by a professional at a department store!
Wrapping both Birthday and Christmas presents will never be a chore again! Firstly, the most important technique for wrapping a present is to cut your paper to the correct size which involves measuring against the sides of the box you are wrapping. This may sound easy enough, but the trouble is we are all always in such a hurry so that as a consequence we end up making a mess of it all because we take shortcuts and think it will just turn out right! With a little patience, you'll be able to wrap your present so beautifully. This helps to build both excitement and anticipation for when your recipient opens their gift.
Watch our 'how to' video below and we'll show you that once you've correctly measured your wrapping paper everything else should just fall into place and be a breeze!
