Instructions:

Step 1:

Wrap the paper around your box to measure the size that you need. Make sure to add an allowance. Once you know, cut the excess.

Step 2:

Flip your paper right side down. On the long side, make a small fold then followed by a bigger fold. Do the bigger fold 3 more times. Open it except for the first small fold and flip it.

Step 3:

Pull the first crease and fold up until the middle of the first rectangle. Do the same for the next ones. Flip it and secure the folds with adhesive tape.

Step 4:

Wrap the paper how you normally wrap a box but make sure the folds are on top.

Step 5:

Cut 2 pieces of  11-inch ribbon. Get one and fold it in half. Fold the right side towards the center making a diagonal fold. Then fold it once to the left. Next, fold the ends on the back of the ribbon, then towards the front. Stick a strip of double adhesive on the top edge of the fold. Make sure it’s between the front and back. Fold the end and stick it to the adhesive.
