How to Fold Tissue Paper

Properly folded tissue paper is the best way to pack delicate gifts. The paper can be in multiple colors to give the package a bright and festive appearance. This quick and easy method can make a gift look good without using a gift wrapping service.

Set the gift down in the middle of the tissue paper. Gather the tissue up around the gift.

Place the tissue-covered gift in the bag. Surround it enough scrunched tissue paper so the gift does not move around in the bag.


Lay another sheet of tissue paper out flat on a table. Grab the tissue in the middle with your thumb and pointer finger and shake it. Place the tissue, point down, in the bag. Repeat with three to five other tissue papers until the bag is full.



  • Keep a stock of bags and multiple colors of tissue on hand for last minute gifts.
