How To Wrap A Box With A Rectangular End
Arona Khan shows us how to gift wrap a box in an original way. A perfect present perfectly wrapped- treat your friends and family to both this Christmas.
Step 1: You will need
- box with a rectangular end
- wrapping paper
- double sided adhesive tape
- matte tape
Step 2: Measure the paper
Measure enough paper to go around the box lengthways. Leave a few extra inches at the end as this will be folded back later.
Step 3: Measure the ends
Measure paper at each end of the box equal to or slightly less than the depth of the box. If it too long on one side, trim the paper to the correct length.
Step 4: Pleat
Fold the end of the gift-wrap back once and over again to make a pleat showing the underside of the paper.
Step 5: Stick together
With the box correct side up, secure the paper around it with double sided tape, positioning the pleat wherever you like.
Step 6: Fold the end
Turn the box upside down. At one end of the box, fold the top part of the paper down and fold the sides in. Use matte tape to stick the bottom flap of paper together over the join. Bring the bottom paper up. Fold the bottom flap along the line where the two side folds meet so that the two flaps come to a point at the sides. Stick in place with double sided tape.
Step 7: Repeat
Repeat this at the other end of the box, folding the paper down, the sides in and the bottom up. Ensure the sides come to a point and secure with tape.
Step 8: Decorate
