Wrap your box. Using Scotch™ Precision Ultra Edge Scissors, cut your wrapping paper to size. Wrap the paper around the box and secure in place with your choice of tape :Scotch® GiftWrap Tape, Scotch® Double-Sided Tape or Scotch® Magic™ Tape. Test out each tape to find which one works best for the paper you are using. Scotch® GiftWrap Tape features a unique satin finish that disappears on most gift wrap papers. Scotch® Double-Sided Tape is coated with a permanent adhesive on both sides so it will be hidden between the layers of wrapping paper. Scotch® Magic™ Tape is the original matte-finish, invisible tape; it’s best for matte-finish wrapping papers.
Make your fan. From the second sheet of gift wrap, cut a strip of paper using your. Scotch™ Precision Ultra Edge Scissors. To make the fan, cut the paper to be 3 by 12 inches. To make a smaller fan, cut a thinner and shorter strip; for a larger fan, cut the paper wider and longer. Next, fold the strip into an accordion, pinch and staple together one end. Spread out the other end to create the fan.
EXPERT TIP: Have fun with colour! There are some many different types of golds and warm metallics gift-wrapping paper available. Customize and stylize as you wish. 🙂
