Before you begin to create the seamless gift wrap, you need to create the gift wrap itself.

Here is a quick guide:

  • Write in the child’s name, insert a little icon of your choice then copy and repeat until you fill the page.
  • Print off one or multiple pages, enough to wrap your gift. Follow these easy instructions to making it bigger while hiding the seams.

Step 1. Gather your supplies.

Step 2. Cut the excess border off each sheet with your scalpel and ruler as close to the words as possible.

Step 3. Now you have the borderless papers, make sure they are even.

Step 4. Line up all four together so the writing runs on as though one big sheet and turn over so the backs are facing up. Cut a long strip of tape and create a cross over the page edges, so all four are stuck together.

Wrap your present with your personalised wrap. Everyone will love the finishing touch!
