DIY Cut wrapping paper to desired size. On the underside, trace outline of the top and two opposite sides of the box. Fold paper in half and, using a hole punch, make two evenly spaced lines of holes from one edge of tracing to the other. Refold paper, creasing in half between the two lines, and punch an alternating pattern of holes. Continue this process until traced area is filled. Wrap punched paper around box and secure with tape, leaving the unpunched sides as overhang to tuck beneath. Loop string around box and knot at the back.
