The holidays are coming and it’s time to start buying gifts for your loved ones. One of the most tedious chores during this time is to gift wrapping, which is something not many people like doing.
A little while ago, a viral video went out showing a gift-wrapper in Japan’s Takashimaya Department store wrapping an entire box in 12 seconds. I don’t know about you, but this is definitely a skill I would like to have in my arsenal.
YouTuber Beat The Bush analyzed the method and released a step-by-step video of how to do this. It takes some practice, but you’ll definitely impress some friends once you master it.
Start by making sure your wrapping paper is about the size that will wrap around the present.
Stick your present right in the middle, rotate it so that it’s a little bit inside the wrapping paper on one edge.
…and the same on the other side.
Pull the corner up all the way.
This will create an edge. Find the corner of the edge and use your index finger to fold the paper in.
Wrap it all the way around and tape it down.
Do the same for the other corner. Wrap it around and tape it down.
Final step, use your index fingers and fold both corners down.
Wrap it to the top, fold it down. Voila!
