Mother’s Day falls on 14th May in Singapore and it is now time to scramble around for gifts and flowers for mummy dearest. Topping the list of gifts is undoubtedly going to be a hamper of indulgent beauty products, the mandatory box of chocolates and some exquisite household decor pieces. All accompanied by a glorious bouquet no less. But make sure you already have gift wrapping ideas for circular gifts because a lot of these gifts are very likely come in circular-shaped or rounded pots, tubs and tins, especially if they are cosmetics or biscuits.
Here is a step-by-step super easy and fast way we have created to wrap circular gifts. This method is suitable for circular shapes of any size and will give you perfectly spaced and symmetrical pleats minus the struggle. We promise that the only tears you will end up with are joyous ones.
Measure out the amount of wrapping paper you need. The length of the paper should wrap all the way around the side of the container. Allow about half an inch more where the ends of the paper will overlap and secured with an adhesive.
The width of the wrapping paper should cover halfway up the top and bottom of the container.
Divide the wrapping paper into 3 sections (top, middle and bottom) by making 2 fold lines. The middle section should be the same size as the height of the container.
Roll up the wrapping paper along its length. The roll should be about 1 inch wide approximately.
Flatten and crease the roll at the top and bottom sections only. Do not do this to the middle section.
Unroll the wrapping paper and pinch at the crease lines to sharpen the folds.
Wrap the container and ensure that its side is positioned exactly at the middle section of the wrapping paper. Secure the ends with double-sided adhesive tape.
Locate the crease lines and folds made earlier.
Grip the folds with your fingers and push down the top flap at the same time.
Flatten the folds to one direction all the way around the flap.
Tuck the last fold beneath the one next to it.
Secure the folds in place with a sticky tag or embellishment. Repeat from Step 7 to close the bottom flap.
