Place the gift box on your wrap to where the edge of the paper will fit about ¾ of the way up the side of the box. Repeat this with the opposite side; this is where you’ll begin to cut.

Step 1 - Place the gift box on your wrap to where the edge of the paper will fit about ¾ of the way up the side of the box
Step 2 - Place the gift box on your wrap to where the other edge of the paper will fit about ¾ of the way up the side of the box
Step 3 - Cut the wrapping paper following the folding guides

Make sure you cut enough lengthwise to fit around the entire gift, giving yourself a little extra room for folding (more on that later). Roll the box along the length of the paper so you can get an idea of how much length is needed, then cut once again.

Step 4 - Roll the box along the length of the paper so you can get an idea of how much length is needed, then cut once again

Place the box upside down on the center of the paper (the bottom of the box should be facing up).

Step 5 - Place the box upside down on the center of the paper (the bottom of the box should be facing up)

Take the top edge of the paper and cover about ¾ of the bottom of the gift. Tape the wrap to the box.

Step 6 - Take the top edge of the paper and cover about ¾ of the bottom of the gift

On the opposite end, fold the edge over (about half an inch) and repeat, this time taping it over the area you just wrapped.

Step 7 - On the opposite end, fold the edge over
Step 8 -  fold the edge over and tape it over the area you just wrapped.

Fold the top flat against the box, using two fingers to press the seams on each side. Secure with tape. Repeat this step on the opposite side of the box.

Step 9 - Fold the top flat against the box, using two fingers to press the seams on each side. Secure with tape
Step 10 - Repeat step 9 on the opposite side of the box
Step 11 - Tuck in the paper on the corners of the box
Step 12 - Tuck in the paper on the corners of the opposite side of the box
Step 13 - Fold the upper and lower flap together
Step 14 - Secure the sides with tape
The gift is now wrapped and ready
