So I've got my box and scissors I've got cut my wrapping paper to the size of my box is a little bigger than my box, which you can, you know, decide, of course, the first few times you're going to waste a bit of paper. But eventually it's you're gonna figure out the best way. And again, I'm not you know, I'm not a pro gift rapper, I do a decent job and I really enjoy doing it. So you don't have to be a professional gift wrapper, or even be really good at it. This is super basic stuff. So you know, I would say I'm pretty beginner at gift wrapping.

I've got my wrapping paper right here and I'm just gonna fold it in half Just find the middle. So I'm doing the first gift wrapping for this box. It's my own packaging gift that I have to send out. And I'm going to include a greeting card. So I'm making a little pocket to make it the, to put the greeting card for you look really pretty, you could do it for your birthday gifts, or you know, anything for that matter. So here, I'm just folding it in center. Right, and just making a little pocket right here. Just make sure it's parallel on both sides. I'm gonna try and fit in my greeting card and see if it fits. Um, yeah, it fits, it looks pretty. Let's do this. So this is done. So I have this little crease in my paper, that's a pocket that's gonna carry my greeting card. So I'm gonna just turn it around, put it flat here and then put my box
right in center.
So what you can do, you can figure out how what how much stuff you want to put in in your pocket. And then decide how deep you want your pocket to be, or which way you want your pocket to go. So if you can see that we bring the phone close. So if you can see, this is how it looks, you know there are creases right here for the pocket. And that's where I am about said I'm not gonna take the box, so you know, the box is reusable. So I wanted to be you know, left as is. And here I go. And that's about it. Then I I tape it everywhere. I turn it around, of course, you know the pocket is some bit of extra space. Let me show you. So the pocket is right here. And once it's all wrapped up, you can put your greeting card like this, and you know it's gonna look really pretty. And you can you can put in a gift card or whatever you like with the gift. So it's completely up to you. Let me do this while you're waiting for someone to tape it up properly. Okay.

Isn't that cool? Isn't that pretty? So that being the that's done now, I have my corners right here. And if you have bigger corners let me just see what's happening with Facebook life. FB live always gives me a hard time I don't know why. I have no idea. I'm still trying Instagram Live is super easy for me. Okay. So And if you guys are joining me on facebook again, I'm trying to figure out a way so I've got my corners here and I'm gonna just cut them to me make the paper more manageable

Okay. And guys, I'm wearing top from my latest collection and it's putting me in Christmas feels I feel so Christmassy thanks to the stop. It's nice red and pink. You know, beautiful cotton tops. So if you're looking to get some Christmas feels, this is the way to go. So again, I've got my one side gun, one sides done. Now the other side, I can do it the same way. Or you could make it like a little bag if you want. You know, there are so many options. Sometimes when I have more access of paper, and I don't feel like carrying it. I just make it into a cute bag. So it's easy to you know, use. So right here, I'm just gonna fold it. Okay, can you see that? Yep. Just like that. Let me Fold the corners. So anyone can do this, you don't have to be a professional packing person. And just David use double sided tape if you want. And wila it's ready. Oh my god, I can't even fit it in the camera. You see that. And it's got a nice pocket. So if you can put your greeting cards in here, you can put your gift cards anything, and we can make I'm planning to make it prettier. I've got these really pretty bows. So I'm gonna attach one here. You can also make a bow yourself. They're not super hard to make. But if you know if not, then just buy one from the market I'm trying to here. Let me just tape it up. So you can also tape these bowls up if the adhesive is not working.

Basically I had to make the pocket deeper. Let me put it in again. You can tape it up if needed. Let's put some trash here. Let's Let's do this. Okay, back again. So let me show this to you. This right here is your gift wrapping with a pocket with a greeting card. One done one more to go. I'm gonna put this on the side. Let's start with the next one. I'm going to give trap Hi Hello I'm going to give trapped this one and I'm going to do it with a tissue paper and you know have a little lace detail on it. So if you love lace, this is the way to go. So I've got this I've got my tissue paper handy. I'm just gonna take double sided because you know single tissue paper is super Super fragile. So here we go. Yep. And then I. So how we do this, I'm gonna wrap it in the tissue first and then put the lace detail up top. lace detail up top, and then just tie the list things so that it looks really nice. So I've got this
Can you see it, so I've just put one tape. Again, you can put some double sided tape, if you want your gifts to look more polished, completely up to you. So I know there are some amazing Packers out there who do amazing, amazing job of doing the corners, right. But this is not about being professional, it's about getting it done beautifully, and enjoying it and not stressing about getting it right. I'm a perfectionist, don't get me wrong, I'm a perfectionist, but you know, you can be good at everything. So I, I give myself, you know, that freedom to make a mess. You know, do it wrong sometimes. Because the important point is to enjoy what you're doing. And holidays are all about having fun. So with all the Christmas shopping, I know it gets super stressful. And we don't have to make gift wrapping stressful, honestly. So I just quickly wrap this wireless book to you. It's a little transparent, you can see the colors, but that does not matter. We just we're gonna put our lease detail. Now you can put the lace detail any way you like, you want to put it like this, you know, just put it in the center. Can you see that? Or if you want to cover it up, so I'm just gonna do it like this, I'm gonna cover half of it. You can also crush your tissue paper and do it and it's gonna look so much more prettier. Some just so easy way to do it. I'm just gonna put my doily, I'm gonna put my gift on top. Tape one side.
See my chair. So see if one side like that. So just making it easy. taping the other side. And these doilies are pretty delicate. So you can choose if you want to kind of use a few instead of just using one.
And then just going like that. Let me show you what it looks like on the other side. Isn't that huge. And then you know, I can just tie it up with a nice Christmas ribbon.
Let's see.
So you can get any ribbon you like I just I like some glitter always. Specially for holiday seasons, I'm going to use two different colors. You can use all the four colors if you like. Let's do that. Let's, let's get a little excited and go Ott with all the colors. I love going overboard. I mean it's Christmas. Just have fun with it. So let's get all the colors. I'm going to just make sure they're on the same length. Yep. Got it. Carrot, carrot, carrot.
Okay, here it is. So we're gonna, I'm just gonna take all four of them together. Everything's falling down today. And then I've got my scissors right here. And I'm going to start with the right side. And just gonna start right here where my leases go back and then twist it and that's about it. You see it? Okay, yep, we've got it. gonna cut my strings. I used all the four colors, and I'll show you how pretty this looks. Again, this is the first time literally that I'm doing this with you guys. So you don't have to be a professional Packers.
