How To Gift Wrap A Bottle

Wrapping A Bottle Without Using A Box Or Gift Bag

The easiest way to wrap a bottle is to cheat and either put it in a box or slip it into a gift bag. But, what about when you don't have a box or bag to hand that fit? You can achieve great results wrapping the bottle itself using this technique.

This guide skips over the basic cylinder wrap. If you're unsure about this stage then look at How to Gift Wrap a Cylinder.
