How to Wrap a Star Shaped Gift

Christmas is just around the corner, and if you’re like me, you’re scrambling to get all of your shopping done. One thing that I always have a hard time with is wrapping gifts. I always need the paper to lay flat or make clean folds. But there’s one type of gift I can always wrap perfectly: star-shaped gifts! Here’s how you can do it too. 

First, you’ll need a star-shaped gift. These are easy to find online or in stores during the holiday season. Once you have your gift, lay it down on some wrapping paper. Make sure there’s enough paper so you can fold it around the gift several times. Next, take one point of the star and start folding the paper over it. Continue folding until you’ve wrapped the entire gift in the paper. You may need to trim off any excess paper at this point. Now comes the tricky part: ensuring all the points are secure! To do this, take a piece of tape and adhere it to one of the flat sides of the wrapped gift. Then, gently pull each point towards the center of the gift and press them down onto the tape.

How Do You Wrap a Random Shaped Gift?

If you have a gift that is an irregular shape, it can be tricky to know how to wrap it. Here are some tips on the best way to approach wrapping a random shaped gift: 

1. First, find a big box to fit your gift inside. If you can’t find an exact match, choose a box that is slightly larger than your gift. 

2. Once you have your box, cut out a piece of wrapping paper that will be large enough to cover the entire box. 

3. Place your gift inside the box and center it in the middle. 

4. Begin wrapping the paper around the box, starting at one end and working your way around until the entire box is covered. Secure the paper in place with tape. 

5. To finish things off, add a bow or ribbon to the top of the wrapped box.

How Do You Wrap an Awkward-Shaped Gift?

If you have an awkwardly shaped gift, it can be tough to know how to wrap it. Here are a few tips on how to wrap an awkwardly shaped gift: 

-First, try to find a box that is the right size for the gift. If the box is too small, the gift will look sloppy; if it’s too big, there will be too much space. 

-If you can’t find a box that’s the perfect size, get creative with other materials like wrapping paper or tissue paper. You can also use fabric scraps or ribbons to tie up the package. 

-Once your materials are ready, wrap the larger sections of the gift first. Then move on to the smaller sections and any odd shapes. 

-Use clear tape or glue dots to secure everything in place. And remember to add a bow or other decoration to make your gift look extra special!


This blog post provides instructions on how to wrap a star-shaped gift. The author begins by folding a piece of paper in half lengthwise. Next, they cut out a star shape from the paper, leaving about an inch of paper at the bottom. They then unfold the paper and fold each side towards the center, creating four triangles.

Finally, they secure the wrapping with tape or ribbon and decorate as desired.
