Hi! This is Diana and I am going to wrap the package in a way that I call firecracker. I have tissue paper this time and I am going to use it with the back side up and we are going to wrap a package that is like a cylinder. So I am going to lay that down in the middle leaving quite a bit on each side and I am going to take my little piece of tape and stick the paper to the cylinder and just roll it, keeping it tight. With tissue paper you just have to make sure that the labels on your package are not showing through the tissue paper and I would like to wrap this around 3 or 4 times around. Now you have the ends that are sticking out and I am going to crush those in together on both sides and I am going to take my curly ribbon again and tie it right around the end in a regular knot. Since I am going to make this the curling ribbon, I am going to get a few more lengths for your former pieces here and put them together almost in the middle; doesn’t have to be exact and tie that right on to the first ribbon. I like to knot it twice to make sure it stays on and each one of those, we are going to curl again with your scissors and when we do that to the other end, we will have your firecracker package.
