How to Wrap Gifts With One Piece of Tape

It’s possible.

The million-dollar question as you prep your holiday gifts before putting them under the tree: How many pieces of tape does is take to wrap that egregiously expensive new Star Wars toy? Six? Four? Given how quickly that roll of scotch tape reaches its last legs, clearly the number skews higher than is necessary.

That being the case, how would you feel about getting it done with one? Yes, as in one piece of tape for the entire gift. It’s possible. In the video above, The Shortcut will turn you into a gift-wrapping Jedi in no time. All you need is a gift, some wrapping paper, scissors, and, yes, one piece of tape.
