Have you started wrapping presents yet? maybe you're super organised and have already finished, :woo: or you might leave it to the last minute like me

How would you describe your wrapping skills?

well to quote Lil Dicky
"Well my flow is crazy, I can switch that amazing
For example, I can be like ain't nobody ****ing with Lil Dicky
When he get up on that **** and spit it sick and ridiculous
Ripping this **** like it's never been did and the rhythm is never predictable
Cause I can switch it, deliver this **** to whatever cadence you *****es prefer"

:five: cubes are the best
anything not a cube, and It always ends with being frustrating with the scissors and them not cutting the paper properly because its not big enough :lol::sadnod:

Nah dude. :nah: Cubes have those two sides where you have to fold the paper into triangles and then try to stick it without any part of the gift showing. I like bag of sweets type presents - you can just roll each side and stick it. So much easier!

oh boy, don't get me started with knots...:nah: :yucky:
I'm guessing that was with string or bows?
the only reason for choosing string for wrapping would be that its possibly more environmentally friendly...

I need just some hours before the distribution of the presents starts. And I am very careful with wrapping just in order to give it a lovely touch.

I typed "how to wrap gifts with fabric" and followed the video instructions -- it was my first time for a double bottle knot, flower knot and bottle knot and it's fun, string-free

Never wrapped anything in my life, but given my general uselessness at doing anything hand related I’m guessing not good.

Nope. I struggle with things like that. I can’t even cut in a straight line! Or do laces. 😂

Oh, that is so cute!

If I have a sister who would wrap my bought gifts for me, I would be soooo happy and hug her all the time. But I haven't.
