You mismeasured the paper—AGAIN!— even though you were SURE you had enough paper! And damn*t, now you have to cut it again, you dope. Oh, and you can’t figure out the damn crease really is or where to fold it!
READY TO CHANGE YOUR LIFE? Use this genius wrapping paper hack! It’s so radical and unexpected that my jaw fell to the floor when I saw it.

Obviously, though, it can’t work with everything. You still need to use a bit of brainpower to make it work, sorry.
I don’t know if anyone’s pointing this out, but an implication is that if you don’t wrap on the diagonal you’re wasting paper. (Unless you’re using patterned/striped paper and that matters to your look.)

Sometimes, when I cut the paper too short, I try this. It does not always work. It def depends on box shape relative to wrapping paper size. https://t.co/RvaNn4u9n4
