WRAPPING PAPER POUCH

What You’ll Need

  1. Cut a rectangle of wrapping paper over twice the size of what you’re trying to wrap. Be sure
    to leave extra room on the edges!
  2. Fold the paper in half.
  3. Staple along every edge except the side across from your fold. Trim any excess paper if your edges aren’t even.
  4. Draw your design on the front of the pouch!
  5. Place the object you’re trying to wrap inside the pouch.
  6. Seal it by stapling along the top edge. Trim any excess paper if you need to.

RIBBON FOLD POUCH

What You’ll Need

  1. Fold paper into thirds, leaving a little overlap in the center. Tape the seam.
  2. Fold up the bottom third of this rectangle and push the sides in to make triangles.
  3. Fold the two straight edges on top and bottom inwards so that they touch. Tape this seam. This is now the bottom of your pouch.
  4. Place the object you’re wrapping inside the pouch.
  5. At the top of your pouch, make a very thin fold. Fold this over on itself, flipping after each
    fold to make an accordion pattern. Continue about a third of the way down the paper.
  6. Cut a length of ribbon about 3x the length of the pouch. Wrap it around the center of the
    pouch lengthwise, making sure the accordion fold is still pressed down. Tie this at the top.
  7. Unfold the accordion towards the edges, leaving the center depressed by the ribbon.

Paper Pyramid

What You’ll Need

  1. Cut your paper or cardstock into a square.
  2. Cut the square into this shape:
  1. Draw a square in the center and triangles extending to each point.
  2. Fold the excess paper on either side of the triangle inwards.
  3. Using a pen or other sharp pointed object, poke holes at the tip of each triangle.
  4. Thread your string or twine through the holes.
  5. Place your object on the square.
  6. Pull the string so that the tips of each triangle meet at the top. Adjust the inside folds as
    needed to make sure that your present is hidden.
  7. Tie the string off at the top
