Happy Wrapping!

December 24, 2010

Here is a novel way to wrap those last minute gifts. Attach a pull cord made of ribbon, so that the paper separates down the middle effortlessly!

Here’s how to do it:

  1. Tape one end of narrow ribbon to the box, and wrap it around the short side of the box at least 2-3 times.
  2. Cut the ribbon leaving a 6” long “tail” extending off the end of the box.
  3. Wrap the package normally, leaving the tail hanging out of the center of the paper.
  4. On the outside of the package, fold the ribbon tail back, and cut 2 small slits on either side, so that the paper will rip in that direction.
  5. Be careful not to tape the ribbon on the outside of the box.

When the recipient pulls the ribbon, it will rip the paper neatly as it unravels.

Happy Wrapping!
