First, place your box in the middle of the wrapping paper upside-down, and pull the gift wrap around the box until it's completely surrounding it. Make sure to give yourself an extra inch or two, and cut the wrapping paper.

2. Check The Length And Cut Gift Wrap

Measure so that the wrapping paper on the sides of the box reach a little more than halfway up. If it is too long, go ahead and cut the wrapping paper so that it is as shown above. Do the same for the opposite side.

3. Tape The Wrapping Paper Around The Box

Wrap the paper as far as it goes (which should be about halfway around the box), and tape it in place. Then go ahead and do the same on the opposite side. (You should now have the wrapping paper wrapped around the entire box, but still have the sides of the box exposed)

4. Fold Each Side Inward And Tape

On the end of the box, fold each side of the wrapping paper into the center and make a crease along the top and bottom flaps as shown above. Tape the sides in place.

5. Tape The Top Flap Down
