Mum reveals last-minute wrapping hack to keep things neat without sticky tape

With Christmas Day tomorrow, it’s time to get those gifts wrapped.

But sometimes you haven’t quite prepared and you run out of wrapping supplies a little too late.

If it’s sticky tape you’re out of, one mum has posted a way to neatly wrap presents without it.

The method is good for the environment too as most tapes aren’t recycable.

Chantel Mila shared her hack on TikTok, showing how she folds the simple brown paper at an angle to create a little pocket and then tucks the end of the last piece in.

If you want to keep it secure, you could add some nice twine or ribbon.

The mum-of-two, from Melbourne, captioned the video: ‘Hello beautiful wrapping, goodbye sticky tape.’

On the video itself, she explains you need to start by positioning the gift diagonally, so that both sides can easily wrap around it.

Then pinch the sides inwards and wrap them around too. Next, you should fold the bottom in a triangle and tuck it inwards and then simply repeat on the other side.

The clip has had over 25,000 views and others were impressed by the handy hack.

One wrote: ‘Wow, I had no idea you could wrap a gift with no tape. Mind blown.’ 

Another posted: ‘That’s awesome.’

And if you haven’t got somewhere easy to do it, try wrapping on your ironing board, as it gives lots of space and the height can be adjusted.
