The Idiots Guide To Wrapping Xmas Presents .
Okay, we've all seen the iconic Christmas images of a tree surrounded by perfectly wrapped presents in films and on Christmas cards, but is it really true to life? Well now it can be by following our simple guide to wrapping your christmas presents, no more dog eared looking presents that are coming unwrapped by Christmas Eve.
Be organised, don't leave it until last thing on Christmas Eve, there is nothing worse than the unnecessary stress of time constraints. Put on some Christmas music, pour a glass of mulled wine and have the mince pies to hand. Do not drink all the mulled wine first as this can seriosuly complicate teh wrapping process.
Gather all the materials you need, wrapping paper, scissors, sellotape, ribbon and obviously the gifts to be wrapped.Plus the first aid kit to deal with cuts etc.
Remove price tag (unless you've gone really overboard and you want the recipient to know), and place gift along the length of the wrapping paper, then unroll enough wrapping paper to wrap over gift leaving about a 2 inch overlap. Check there is enough paper at each end to cover the gift completely when folded over them.
Now cut the paper in the relevant place, use a pencil to mark where to cut the paper (as determined in Step 3). Then cut the paper, to help keep your cutting straight either fold the paper or use a long ruler.
Check the paper at each end, if there is an excess trim away. You should be left with enough paper to cover the ends, but not too much it makes folding into flaps difficult, if this is not the case, then go back to step 2 and maybe ease of the mulled wine.
Open out the cut piece of paper and place the gift in the centre upside down on the unprinted side of the paper (Obvious I know, but there's always one!)
Bring one lengthwise edge of the wrapping paper to the centre of the gift and secure to gift with tape. Fold under 1 inch of the opposite lengthwise edge and bring to the centre, then tape down the full length of the edge.
Turn the half wrapped gift so that one short end is facing you. Hold the left and right edge of the wrapping paper and push the sides in to form flaps top and bottom, ensuring sharp creases. Tape the edges to the gift.
Fold down the top flap and tape to gift, repeat with the bottom flap.
Repeat steps 8 and 9 for the other end of the gift.
With the gift seam side up, place a ribbon lengthwise under the gift and bring it up over the gift. At the point where the ribbon meets cross the ribbon over and wrap widthwise over the gift.
Turn the gift over, unless you can tie a ribbon upside down, and tie the ribbon in a bow in the centre of the gift.
Affix gift tag, either tie onto the end of the ribbon or stick directly on to the gift.
Repeat all of the above steps for the necessary number of gifts.
This method works best for square or rectangular shaped gifts, if you need to wrap an unusual shaped gift then place in a appropriately sized box prior to wrapping. If even after following this guide your wrapped gifts still look like a bad art student project then there are always gift bags.
Remember Charity At This Time Of Year.
We should always remember that unfortunately there are people and families not as fortunate as ourselves and that charitable donations are always welcome at the various worthwhile charities.
No matter how small whether it be money, clothes , or Xmas presents those gifts are truly appreciated.
We at Peraleja Golf Resort are running a Golf event where everyone has to bring toys or make a donation to the local orphanage in Murcia. We know that we have played a small part in making the childrens Xmas a lot better than it would have been.
I urge you all to make a small donation to a charity of your choice, I guarantee you will feel happier for doing so.
