You've been wrapping your Christmas presents all wrong – my simple trick means you only need one piece of tape

THE HOLIDAY season is in full swing, which means bright lights, hot cocoa, and usually a large amount of gift-wrapping. 

And according to one expert, you only need a single piece of tape to wrap those presents perfectly.


Natasha Swingler, a professional organizer and gift-wrapping expert, showed followers exactly how to wrap a rectangular present in a video posted to her popular Instagram page.

She started by placing the object on a sheet of wrapping paper, and slowly formed the paper to the present by folding it many times diagonally across the top of it. 

The only piece of tape needed was at the bottom of the present to secure it all in place.

Her followers were mesmerized by her trick, with one calling it “epic.”

Another complimented the video, saying: “Omg is there anything you can't do … this is amazing.”

That’s not the only trick Natasha has up her wrapping paper rolls, though.

In another video, she showed how to wrap a present with no tape at all.  

However, she admitted the trick “​​does require more paper than normal,” but said the paper can be reused for another present if unfolded with care.

If you don’t have enough wrapping paper for a present, there are alternate ways to present the gift to its recipient. 

Gift-wrapping expert Jane Means suggested using a paper table cloth to wrap large presents and fabric remnants lying around the house if there is no wrapping paper available at all.

​​"Simply place the item in the center of the fabric and gather. 

“Tie a knot to secure and you have an eye-catching gift," she explained. 

Yet another gift-wrapping professional shared her tips for wrapping awkwardly-shaped presents.
