My Favorite Gift-wrap Trick

Since the holidays are approaching, I thought I'd share one of my favorite grift-wrapping tricks. I learned this when I worked retail... a real budget saver when you offer free gift wrap because you can use half as many boxes! I am much better at showing than explaining so you can find lots of pictures with instructions here. You'll see how I can turn one half of a shirt box (because I'm always losing or ruining half) into a usable gift box with a little bit of folding and a couple of snips. This is my first go at a sort of tutorial, so if the instructions aren't clear just let me know.

Brilliant! I have a bunch of too-big boxes left over from those economy packs of Christmas wrapping. Now I can use them! Thank you, Sally!

Oooh, thanks for posting this!! I've got a stack of unfortunately-sized boxes that will now get repurposed this year!
