Gift wrapping is not just paper bags and adhesive bows. It can be a real art, from the Japanese craft of furoshiki to the homespun embellishments of fabric bows and washi tape.

Learn how to shape pleats for a round present, make a stylish floppy bow out of leftover gift wrap, create Japanese seamless wrapping and more, all on the LA Times' site.
