I love wrapping gifts for the holidays, so when I saw this design by I. Sasaki, I knew I have to try them. Isn’t this very creative and beautiful? The receiver of these gifts will surely appreciate and compliment you more. Learn how to make this DIY Christmas gift-wrapping idea through the video tutorial below.
Sizes for the Christmas tree:
Place the box in the middle. Fold the long sides of the wrapping paper first, then the short sides to make a crease. After that, remove the box then fold the paper as sharply as you can. Add a strip of double adhesive on the end of one long side. Place the box back in the middle and cover it with the paper by attaching the two ends together. Next, cover the side. Fold the short sides down to make trapezoidal ends, then glue the long sides down.
Cut a long strip of paper that can wrap around the box. Wrap it around and fold it to make a crease. Remove it from the box and fold it sharply. Next, fold it in half lengthwise just a little bit. Make triangular ends by folding the corners. Do the same for the other end. Glue it into the box.
Wrap the metallic threads on the box and glue on the middle. Separate each thread.
Get one of the Christmas tree squares. Fold the square in half diagonally on both sides. Next, fold it in half. Open it up and fold the sides inside to form it into a triangle. Gently fold it in half just to make a crease in the center. Get one of the corners and fold until the middle. Do the same for the other corner. After that, flip it. Fold the small triangular tips in half. You can glue them or fold them inside. Repeat the same process for the remaining paper sizes.
Stack each of the folded squares to make the Christmas tree. Make sure not to insert the bottom triangle all the way through. Glue the Christmas tree on the box.
