Trying to save every inch of wrapping paper is sometimes a necessity when you have a lot of gift to wrap. Not one to just bag it, you are faced with the challenge of wrapping an item that is too big for the piece of paper that you cut. Instead of throwing that piece away and starting all over, try wrapping your gift diagonally. Fold two of the corners of the paper inwards; then make sure you crease the lines vertically at the corners. After a few pieces of tape and crisp folds, your present will be wrapped.
