My ability to wrap things is so bad in my year 10 work experience I had to wrap a package and it looked so bad and amateurish they had to re-do it :cry:

Fortunately it's not a skill I've had to use since...I generally avoid it by just giving people their presents directly. Or using gift bags, sometimes

Can’t even hold the scissors and wrapping paper properly when I’m trying to cut the paper (gotta love being both left handed and dyspraxic sometimes )
If anyone’s receiving gifts or SS’s off me this year I tried :giggle:

Horrific.

That being said, I do make my own packaging for mail (large or small) so my packaging skills in general are okay.

Just that I can't die a bow for squat so :lol:

This thread might turn into 'dyspraxics unite!' but having bought a hexagonal box of Turkish delight for my dad, I can say that once you graduate beyond the cuboid and the (long) cylinder they're not up to much! :lol:

They suck. I can respectably wrap something like a book thanks to the angles and edges, but give me anything oddly-shaped, and it ends up looking like a blob...

I can do it to a reasonable standard, haven't wrapped anything for years but I am confident it will be passable, not the most amazing but decent enough.

If it's a normal shaped object then i can wrap it fairly well, but not a chance at something slightly odd-shaped :lol:
