Even if you buy the loveliest present, the effect can be ruined if it’s not wrapped esthetically. It may be very disappointing if a gift you receive is unwrapped, or simply thrown in a plastic bag.
At the beginning of the video below you can see a simpler gift-wrapping technique, whereas the second part shows a more time-consuming, but very unique method. So, if you watch the video, you can learn two techniques which you can use any time to impress your family and friends.
This is how the Japanese wrap their presents: all you will need is a piece of paper, some adhesive tape and 15 seconds. This technique is very easy to learn, you make a few folds, and you’re done.
In the second technique, you will need two different kinds of paper, a pair of scissors and some more advanced skills. Place the two sheets of paper on top of each other, and start folding and unfolding them from the margins at every 2 cm or so. Cut off one corner into triangle-shape, and fold one side so it resembles a fan.
Wrap the book so the fan-shape part is on the top, and finally tie the present with a ribbon. It looks great, doesn’t it?
