Place your box in the middle of the wrapping paper, face down. Make the paper at least twice the size of the box. Thin paper helps, too. It's easier to fold.
Pull the wrapping paper from the left and right. The ends should meet in the center of the back of the box and form a straight line.
Pull the wrapping paper from the top and the bottom. Fold the ends into equally sized triangles, you know, like an envelope.
Tape discreetly. Add bow (optional). Give!
