‘Tis the season to wrap lots and lots of presents, so with all that hard work why not, in the words of Molly Sims, let your gifts look “flawless and professional” by doing it yourself? Check out the supermodel’s six steps below.
Start by setting the present in the middle of the wrapping paper. Make sure you have enough paper that will cover both sides. If you don’t have enough, use two sheets placed on the top and bottom of present. Make sure the top of the gift is facing the plain side.
Fold edges over to make it clean. Secure with tape as needed. If you have any excess paper on the sides/edges of the present, make sure to trim off.
Fold both sides in to form a V shape. Fold top flap down and fold the raw edge as the bottom flap. Secure with magic tape.
Repeat on other side.
Pinch all edges of gift with your fingers for a neat and clean finish.
Finish off with an embellishment. If you want to decorate with something other than a ribbon or bow—opt for something more creative. Ornaments, candy canes, rosemary sprigs, and baubles make a fun and unique package.
