Gift Wrapping 101

DIY, BusinessKat Rainwater

I’m not going to lie…I’m a pretty skilled wrapper. (Not to be confused with rapper…which would be kinda awesome.) I don’t have too many bragging rights but if I had to pick one, wrapping presents just might be it. My gift wrapping skills were perfected when Cason got me a job at Swoozie’s as the seasonal gift wrapper while I was home from college for Christmas. I had obviously wrapped presents before but I was in no way qualified to be a professional “gift wrapper.” I had a whole table set up in the back room with wrapping paper and ribbons galore and that’s where I perfected my craft.  To be totally honest though, these techniques are not my own…I went through an intense Swoozie gift wrap boot camp and I think it’s safe to say the student has officially become the teacher.

Without further ado, here are my steps to wrapping the perfect gift! *BUT before you hit play- it’s a little blurry and not up to professional standards but it’s the first video Cason has ever done so it’s definitely not perfect. (Side note: Is there anything worse than hearing your voice on video?! UGH.)

There you have it! All my gift wrapping secrets in one short video. Turn up the Christmas tunes, pour a glass of wine, and get to wrapping!

This year you’re bound to have the prettiest gifts under the tree!
