Layered Wrapping Technique

Combine patterns for wrapping that gushes originality! Create gift wrapping like nothing else simply by cutting design paper into strips. Have fun combining a variety of patterns!

You will need...


  • A sheet of A4 size design paper (printed on plain paper)
  • Craft paper, colored paper, etc.
  • Ribbon or cords, etc. for decorating


  • Cellotape, masking tape, etc.

Before you start

  • Make sure you have your design paper ready in advance.
  • Don't forget, you can print design paper using the smartphone app "Epson Creative Print". If your model comes with a design paper option built in, you can print it straight from the printer.

How to

  1. Layer the design paper cut into strips over the box.
  1. Fasten it to the back surface with masking tape or cellotape, and it's done.
  1. Match with black or brown yarn, some ribbon in a dark color, or throw in some solid colored paper to pull it all together.
    It's possible to create a number of different presentations by preparing design paper strips cut into a variety of widths, from wide to narrow, and combining them freely based on their area rather than just by pattern.
    Matching patterns to patterns may appear difficult at first glance, but it's much easier than you think. Try lots of combinations.

—Style 1—

This layered wrapping technique works on boxes of any size. Transform any dull cardboard box or empty box into a cute gift! It's fun trying to match patterns to the atmosphere of the receiver!

Try coordinating various colors of ribbon and yarn with different patterns.

—Style 2—

Wrap some design paper around a store bought container filled with treats like candy or dried fruit for a simple gift. With colorful contents such as these, a single strip of design paper may be just as good as layering. Try looking at the overall balance when making your arrangement.
