LONG gone are the days of wasting wrapping paper and boxes.
A wrapping-savvy woman has revealed exactly how to have the perfect sized box for any size shirt – it saves space and paper.
“Right now I am wrapping a lot of gifts and I wanna show you this life hack that I learned last year that like changed my life,” the woman, named Bella, said in a video shared with her more than 1 million TikTok followers.
“If you have a bunch of shirt boxes but you need one that’s smaller, this is all you have to do.”
First, she folded the box almost in half, but stopped it a few inches short to make it even with the edge of the box already folded down.
“So you just fold it over on one side and crease it and then you take the other side,” she explained, as she showed the process in action.
Next, the video showed two folded lines running across the width of the box.
Bella instructed her followers to cut each line on both sides of the box a few inches deep.

The cut sections became the flaps for a new side of the box, while the bigger portions served as the top and bottom of a new and smaller box.
“This is a game-changer,” Bella said.
“Look how cute.”
Her fans were super excited about the hack, with many thanking her for showing it to them.
“I really needed this life hack,” one follower commented.
“It works, thank you, and Merry Christmas.”
“Thank you,” another person said.
“This will really help.”
“Where was this yesterday when I was wrapping up my husband's clothes?!” a third person, who seemed to view the video too late, wrote.
