Step 1 – Before you start, make sure you have everything you need close to hand:-

  • The gift to wrap
  • Scissors
  • Tape
  • Tin cans (or something to use as weights).

Step 2 – Place your gift on the gift wrap paper, and check the best angle to cover all of your gift.

This is were the tin cans come in handy – use weights to hold down the edges of the wrapping paper.
