Gift bags are great for those oddly shaped items. There are tons of them out there and you can even find plain ones that can be reused for other occasions--never hurts to recycle!! But the type of paper you use has a lot to do with the success of the finished product. Really cheap paper tears easily and can be frustrating. Until you're better at it, either go really slowly and carefully or invest in some thicker paper. Work on a solid surface. So much easier to get those corners done. Don't cut your paper too big--or trim it down. Fold the paper to make your edges nicer--use the back of the scissors to crease it. On the ends, trim the top and bottom to a little more than 1/2 the measurement of the height and the sides to a little more than 1/2 the width. Fold the sides in first, crease. Then the bottom, then the top and tape. Ready cut tape helps too. HTH Happy Holidays!
