Gift Wrap in a Snap

YouTube Link

This may sound strange, but I actually like to wrap gifts. I'd rather wrap a gift than put it in a gift bag. But sometimes, if my December is hectic, I end up with a mountain of gifts to wrap on December 24th at about 10:00 pm. This cool wrapping trick shown in this video is something I plan to try this year. I hope readers can make use of it as well! -Via Design Taxi

I'm gonna try this myself, but I feel it's worth noting that I'll have a couple disadvantages to overcome that the person in the video gets to bypass.

1. My gifts are all different sizes, unlike the uniform size-and-shape boxes in the video.
2. My gift wrapping paper is in long rolls that must be custom cut for each gift, unlike the pre-cut uniform shape gift wrap sheets shown here.

If I can get past those hurdles, maybe I can make this work. If only they gave us a cheat sheet for the geometry tricks used to figure out how to match up the 2D size of the cut sheet relative with the 3D dimensions of the box to be wrapped.
