Makes much more personal and most of all the box becomes a cache all for all those wonderful things in life.
Bring the edges in and fold as pictured. Make creases and fold the edges that stick up over the box as shown. Tape the first folds to the inside lip of the lid. Where the side and end papers meet in the corners is the only tricky part, but just tuck and fold until flattened and then place a piece of tape to hold.
Continue to fold and wrap the end just like a regular box, but take extra time folding and creasing, since you want this to look nice for years to come. When finished folding the end, wrap it over the lid edge and secure it with tape. Go back over the lid and fully tape all un-taped edges. This makes the wrapping job last longer through many years of kids ripping the lids off on Christmas morning. This is the obviously imperfect edge on the inside of the bottom of the box.

Even if you think that the corners in the inside look odd, I love this wrapping method, Thank you…. This is a great idea! Make them up ahead of time and then all you have to do is fill them with the gifts as you bring them home from shopping. What a time saver. I was wondering though…. I tried something similar to this years ago, and found the paper got wrinkled and had to be replaced because the bag they were in got moved from place to place on my storage shelves throughout the year.
Perhaps I should have kept them in something else………Ideas? Yes, Shellie, I do! Perfect timing to learn how to wrap a box! Christmas is coming, hurry up! I like how careful your way is. Do you have any suggestions for acquiring a few different sized boxes with lids? I use mostly shoe boxes, Carol! How to Gift Wrap a Hexagonal Box: Gift Wrapping How to gift wrap hexagonal and other multi-angled boxes. They produce beautiful gift wrapping results.
And it's not as difficult as it looks! Are you puzzling over how to gift wrap a hexagonal box? Believe it or not, a multi-angled box is easier to wrap than a round box, and it always looks like a very well-dressed gift! A few introductory thoughts: About boxes - The illustrated gift wrapping instructions below show a hexagonal box, since those seem to be the most common.
About wrapping papers - Standard wrapping papers that can be folded crisply are the best for hexagonal boxes. This includes foil gift wraps, but not "mylar" type metallic-finished wraps. We don't recommend tissue wrapping paper because the corners of your box will easily tear through. But if you add more layers, the extra bulk will be difficult to fold into nice, sharp creases.
Gift Wrapping Tips - Before you learn how to gift wrap a hexagonal box, it's a good idea to review our six general wrapping tips, if you haven't already done so. Width side to side across the design - make it inches more than the distance around the sides of the box. Height the up-and-down way, for a directional design should equal the distance across the center top of the box measured side to side, not angle to angle AND down one side.
NO extra height, please - excess paper at the top or bottom will really get in your way! Center the box on its side on the paper. Point the top of the box toward the top of the design if applicable.
