To give a cylindrical package the look of a snapper, the kind used at parties, roll the box in paper which is long enough so that the ends may be gathered and tied. Use ribbon to tie the ends, and cut them in a fringe.
The easiest way to wrap round gifts is to use the shape, rather than disguising it. Cover with paper, securing the overlap with tape. Don’t tuck the paper ends in; tie them off with ribbon and cut them to make a spaghetti fringe.
