Learn to Wrap Like a Pro: We Answer all Your Gift-Wrapping Woes

Want to learn how to wrap like a pro? Well, you’ve certainly come to the right place. We've long been known for our range of wacky and wonderful wrap and over the years we’ve developed some tried-and-true methods on how to wrap even the most oddly shaped gift. So, let us show you how to make the gifts that you give stand out from the crowd, with wrapping inspo for every type of friend or family member.  

"I want to wrap my child’s presents with something a bit different this year. Any ideas?"

(This present is LIT.)

Select some quirky wrap from our range as your base paper. We have all kinds of characterful, fun prints to suit every kind of kid, but we don’t think just the paper is enough. We have got soooo many amazing accessories, you won’t be able to resist going a bit crazy with them. Don’t be afraid to mix and match ribbons & bows – the more fun you have wrapping it, the more fun they’ll have opening it. You can even tie lights around them to brighten up their Christmas morning! 


"I only have wrapping paper, but I have a really difficult shape to wrap. HELP!"

The easiest way to tackle awkward gifts like say… a pencil case or a child’s toy is to make a gift bag out of the wrapping paper you have. Think about it: you have all those angles, some hard, some soft and it’s just so awkward to wrap. You’ll probably suffer from paper splits and end up messing up the paper and tape, throwing it across the room. Well, you would throw it, if that tape wasn’t stuck to your hand. You get the gist: annoying. 

Making a bag out of paper is not only simple, it means you can just drop the gift inside and fold over the top, plus it looks pretty and doesn’t break the bank. 

First of all, make sure the paper will cover your gift completely and then you’re set to go. 

Step 1. Lay the paper flat (anchor edges if it’s all curling over) 

Step 2. Fold one side over, then overlap the other side and tape. You’ll end up with a loop of paper – two holes either end. 


Step 3. Fold one of the open ends over, then lift it upwards and squash it flat. You’ll end up with a diamond shape. 

Step 4. Fold in the top and bottom corners and tape it all down. 


Step 5. Insert your hand into the open end and open it all out. You’ll be left with a bag shape. 


All that’s left top do now is pop your gift in, fold the corners down and fold the whole lot over and tape. Then just add a bow or a tab or any decoration you like. Loads to choose from here.
