Are you also wrapping presents at the moment? What a task! I rather love it, but sometimes it gets a bit tricky when the gift is an odd shape.
For small gifts like the above picture, I like to make a cracker “casing”. Here is the easy How- to.
Step 1- measure your gifts and cut the cardboard a centimeter larger. Then cut a piece of gift-wrap 5 centimeters longer than the board at the ends.
Step 2- roll the gifts into the cardboard and secure them with tape.
Step 3- now roll again, using the gift wrap.
Step 4- tie the ends with a ribbon, closing it.
Step 5- look at your neat cracker gift!
You can use a cardboard roll if your gift will fit in it, or a Pringles can. Just skip step 2;)
