How To Wrap A Box With A Rectangular End

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
  • scissors
  • 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
