Here we are again tackling not only a circular-shaped gift but one which is also odd-shaped. Yes, product packagings are getting increasingly innovative, creative and intended to stand out from the rest.
This means we are receiving more and more gift shapes that do not seem to follow the rules of trigonometry. This particular odd-shaped circular gift we have demonstrated here is a Sephora packaging for its line of eye mask products.
We have done a gift wrapping blog on this same item using the same technique earlier on, but for this one we video recorded the steps. The item shape looks like a circle that has been sliced off, something like a semi-circle but not quite (some high school arithmetic here).
The gift wrapping technique we have created ourselves is nothing like you may be used to when wrapping circular gifts. We discovered a hack that will give you perfectly spaced and symmetrical pleats minus the struggle.
The pleats are first created by rolling the paper up and then flattening it to create evenly spaced folds. Use the folds as guides to press down against and all around the circular gift … easy-peasy!
Watch how we do it:

We have republished the photo steps:
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.
