Santa Look Instructions:

1. Measure the already wrapped gift across.

2. Cut out a strip of red construction or craft paper to fit the width.

3. Cut a square of silver paper that is 2 in x 1.5 in.

4. Fold the silver paper in half. Make 3 cuts along the edges, to take the middle out.

5. Place the silver paper in the middle of the red strip. Tape them together using Scotch® GiftWrap Tape.

6. Turn the strip over. The silver square should be hugging around the strip, to form a belt.

7. Place the strip about ⅓ from the bottom of the gift.

8. Tape the strip at the sides of the gift using Scotch® GiftWrap Tape. It disappears and never shows on your “belt!”

3. Pull one side of string through a gift tag.

4. Tie the string like a shoelace.
