Wrapping holiday presents can be overly stressful. I am terrible at it. I have anxiety now. Kathy, how did I do? Managing editor of on-line parents. Crafty yet simple ideas. We're both very bad wrappers. I'm excited to show you how to get started. First of all, you want to have your box upside down. Upside down. I like to have the three-quarter rule. What's that? The paper comes up three-quarters of the way up from the side. Wow, that's getting specific. There we go. Is this double stick? Yes. Double stick is also our big tip. We're not doing this? Want yet. Take this short side, fold it over, use your double stick right here. Put a little piece here. Yeah. And then what you're going to do, fold the non-folded part up. Guys, did you get these tips? Three-quarters, tape on this, fold the non-folded one up first. And then fold this over so you have a nice, gorgeous seam like that. Then you'll go in front here. You've got that three-quarter rule. Yeah. Go in, and you want to use nice, really heavy paper. Yes. This is craft paper that you can buy at an office supply store. But I'm all lumpy and this is a good box. I'll shoel you a little tip. Oh, you fold it over that thing. That's getting technical. Don't help me because I'll be on my own. I see what you did right there. I will show you how to get those lumps out, too. Once you've got it folded, you're going to look at your package like this and see -- you want to make creases. By the way, this is going to be on accesshollywoodlive.Com. Awesome. This is incredible. Go like this. Go like this. I hope my wife isn't watching because now I have to help. Which I don't want to do. Oh, my god. Did you butcher it? No, you did great, too. This is a good box. I'm wrapping stuff that's pokey and out there, but I like your tips and I like the double stick. I think mine might be better than yours. More from kathy after these messages. . Okay, momtastic, here we go. We have brown paper here. What do we do? This is what do you with your kids. You can punch out stars, shapes, anything you want on this sticker paper that you get at the office store. With this you can use your -- look how cute this is. Use your eraser and u red or white. This has paint right in it. So just squeeze and boom, boom, boom. Then you can make this gorgeous wrapping paper. Tell me about the name tags. She made these out of her kid's foot. That is so cute. Those are reindeer, and these little tags, you can just put candy on the tags and really embellish it. And you can get paper on line with your family's pictures. Kathy, you did it again.
