Gift Wrapping - A Good Idea

Get your gift wrapping paper and make sure you cut enough paper. You can do this by measuring the length of your paper with a piece of ribbon or string. Cut the string and wrap it around your box. That way you will know how much paper to cut.

Once you've cut the paper, wrap around the box and tape.

When it comes to the corners, neatly fold them in toward the box and fold up then tape.

Now you are ready to make a bow. Instead of buying expensive bows, make your own with ribbon. Take your ribbon and fold into loops (you'll make a lot about 18 - 24 depending on how big you want it). The tie the loops together in the middle with another piece of ribbon. Fluff the bow and tie onto the ribbon that is around your box.
