I suck at it.
People poke fun at how bad I am. Family members. Friends. Even the cat seems to smirk.
I start off thinking that everything will be okay.
But then I realize I haven't cut enough paper.
This happens a lot. One would think I could look at a present and know right away how much paper I'll need. But no.
Sometimes I'll cut an added piece to cover the toy. This one I didn't because it's from Santa, therefore it will not be underneath the tree.
This is usually how I wrap things:
How do people get such nice corners? Mine are always loose and I sort of shove them down and quickly slap some tape over it. Most folks know if I've wrapped a present because of this.
"Oh! Amber did this one!" a friend once said as she examined the sloppy ends.
Maybe if I slowed down and smoothed corners and all that, my presents would be pretty. As it is, I generally rush through it, wanting to slap the paper over the gift so I can be done with it. Sometimes I surprise myself and do a good job. Most of the time though...well, see above.
Lucky for me, I'm done wrapping presents this year. I await the insults.
Hi, I'm Amber, and I stink at wrapping stuff.
