I worked at a chocolate shop for a good chunk of my adult life and had to wrap boxes every day. I got really good at it, and really fast.
This chocolate shop had a specific method of wrapping gifts so we could tuck a notecard into the fold. It’s a really cute and unique way to put your card on the present without using tape. I still to this day wrap my presents this way (though I don’t always use it for card tucking purposes).
Today I’m going to show you the easy task of wrapping your gifts to include a fold to tuck your card in.
Image 1: Place your present face up (instead of the usual face down) and cut your wrapping paper with extra length on either end.
Image 2: Grab both ends of the paper and bring the edges together.
Image 3: Fold the excess paper over so the edges touch the package and it folds in half, creating a ridge. Crease the ridge of this fold.
So yes folks this is how I always wrap my presents. Thank you part time job for a very useful tool!
