Hey guys, it's Chris here, and today I'm going to show you how to draw a present box. So basically what you want to do you're going to start off with doing a couple of lines going up and down, going vertically. You're going to draw one in the middle and then you're going to draw one on this side that's a little bit higher than the first one just so we can kind of show you how to get a little depth in there. And then on the other side you're going to draw the same thing but keep it a little bit closer than the one that's on the right hand side here. You're going to connect them all so that they connect in a diagonal form here, same thing on this side and then on the top you're going to follow with the line with the diagonal line on this side as well. So you're going to go like that and then connect it here so that it looks like a box. Now if you want, I mean you can do whatever kind of design you want for your wrapping paper. It's totally up to you. I'm just going to do a little bit of an orange wrapping paper here today and I'm going to leave a little bit of room in the middle here just for the ribbon that's going to be put on top and keep this little orange here for the wrapping paper and now I'm going to take my handy dandy pink and I'm going to draw a ribbon. And just make sure that when you're doing your ribbon you're going with the lines that are on the sides so that it retains its shape because when you look at an actual present, I mean the ribbons are going over the top and they're crisscrossing. So I'm going to draw a crisscross on the top here just like that and then for the bow just put that right on the top and then you can just do two big swoops just like that. If you want you can put a little bit of a horizon line in there and there you go, that's a basic present box.
