How To Gift Wrap A Cylinder

How To Gift Wrap A Cylinder Or Tube, Part 2

Back to Part 1 of How to Wrap a Cylinder

OK, Part 1 covered the basics, now for the tricky bit... the ends! We are going to fan-fold the ends of the cylinder, which beats the simpler 'scrunch and twist' for presentation hands down.

1. Make sure you have even amounts of excess wrapping paper at either end of the cylinder. If not, push the item inside through until even.

2. Snick the ends at the join. Cut all the way down to the item inside.

6. When you have one last fan to make, stop folding. It will be easier to finish this when you can stand the item up.
