  • Wrapping paper

  • Scissors

  • Tape

  • Ribbon, cord, or other trim


  1. Cut paper several inches larger than the amount needed to wrap the item. Fold paper in half, pattern side in.

  2. Fold top layer of paper back partially creating a pocket of desired depth; press to crease.

  3. Wrap and tape presents as you normally would, keeping the pocket fold in place. Decorate the pocket with ribbon, cord, or other trim.
