It’s almost here! The long-awaited Christmas! All the Christmas lights have been hung on the roof, a beautiful Christmas tree stands gleaming with its new toys, all the gifts are bought, and it seems like everything is ready! But there is one thing that I personally have always associated with Christmas – of course, it is unwrapping presents. You know, when all those lovingly applied bows are flying around, along with the carefully selected ribbons surrounded by the happy sounds of rustling paper! :) This is definitely an essential attribute of Christmas!
Well, to make it all happen, first you need to wrap the gifts, pack them in the boxes and decorate with those ribbons and bows :) And this process for me is not any less fascinating than unwrapping the presents.
The easiest way to do this is to buy ready-made blanks for boxes (Walmart), but you can also use any boxes that you can find in your house. For example, I used a Glossybox (which I have accumulated way too many of!).
I’m not going to teach you here how to wrap boxes – this technologically complicated process is something that even a 5-year-old child knows! :) I can only say that the paper can be glued onto the box or you can just cover your boxes by wrapping the paper to the inside of the box and then securing it with duct tape. A big benefit to this type of gift wrapping is that after the holidays, all those boxes can be reused; just remove the paper and use them again! Personally, I prefer to use boxes I already have, since I have so many of them that I could supply the whole army of a small state :)
But in the end, as a final touch, fill your box with some rustling paper and the gift itself; then wrap your boxes with ribbons, decorate with the bows and now we’re done! :)
