Neatly wrapping a tube-shaped gift can also give a lot of people trouble. Lennia, the "folding queen," showed a trick for making the ends look nice and neat. After cutting the paper to size with the tube, she then cuts the ends into tabs. Then she just presses each individual tab down once the paper is wrapped around the tube, giving it a nice clean edge.

Another TikTok user named Molly, posting under the name The Renegade Home, shared a tip for people that have trouble measuring the right amount of paper for a gift. If the paper ends up being too small, she recommends turning the item diagonally before making any folds. This can help take up less paper in the wrapping process.
