I've decided this year that I'm going to create gift boxes instead of using the gift bags to transport my gifts in for family and friends. Here is what I did...
You will need:
Scissors or a Knife
First cut off any flaps from the top of the box.
Then measure the wrapping paper with the box laying on the side, width and additional that will cover 1/2 the bottom of the box.
Make sure the paper's length will cover all 4 sides of the box
Wrap the paper around the box. The tape. I place the crease on the corner of the box so it won't be as visible.
On the bottom, wrap it like you would a gift and secure with tape.
Cut another piece of paper as you did the first time, but not leaving much of extra. Maybe 1/2 of inch.
Fold the 1/2 inch upward so the back of the paper is showing
Fold the whole sheet in half and crease it. This will be put in the boxes corner to make it easier to insert.
Wrap the inner paper around the box, and secure with tape
Cut out a piece of paper the same size as the bottom of the box
Fold the sides in about 1/4 inch
Place inside of box and secure with tape
My box had handle holes so I cute them out as well.
Now I'm done!
