VIDEO: The real way to wrap a present

December 24, 2015 - 8:30 AM

YOU WERE DOING IT WRONG ALL ALONG

Anyone who has ever seen origami knows the Japanese know how to create amazing shapes with a simple fold of a paper, but did you know those same techniques can be used to wrap a gift more quickly and with less paper?

If you have more than a couple boxes to wrap this technique could save you a lot of time. The video below shows a clerk at a department store in Japan wrap two boxes in less than 30 seconds, which is much better than the several minutes I usually spend struggling to wrap a basic box.

So if you’re looking for a little inspiration, or maybe just trying to save a little time so there is more time to sip the eggnog, give this method a try. Be sure to let us know if it worked for you.
