Before you begin, wrap each package in the traditional way. Using the same paper, construct "bows" for the tops, which cascade down the sides of the box. Each piece of paper is applied using a 1 1/2- to 2-inch tape roll -- a piece of tape secured to itself at both ends. (Double-sided tape can be used, but tape rolls give the best results.)
These instructions are for a 3-by-3 1/4-by-11-inch box. You can replicate this or use it for inspiration.
