Save yourself a lot of scotch tape and time. Instead, use plastic grocery shopping bags, the cheap, thin ones. Through a heat shrinking method, the wrap will be like the saran-wrap-like plastic on a new box of tissues. The process is easy. Simply seal it in a hot press. Then use a heat gun to shrink it to the gift’s size.
Check with your local shipping and packaging store for all the items. You’ll need plastic bags, the hot press to cut it, and a heat gun. It should cost you less than $50. It’ll pay itself off in time.
