Perfect Gift Wrapping Ideas
They're tricky, but when tucks are done well, this kind of wrapping looks beautiful!

This wrapping is perfect for cylindrical shapes such as tea canisters or tins of candy. Creating tucks around the cylindrical shape can be a bit difficult for beginners, but the beautiful finished result can’t be beaten.

    Tip

    The number of tucks
    can be adjusted, but this wrapping looks attractive when opposing tucks form a straight line. Once 1⁄4
    of the cylinder has been wrapped, if there are three tucks, work to create 12 in total; if there are four tucks, create a total of 16.
