Crease the Edges

Another great quality of grocery bags for gift wrap is the durability. In fact sometimes when you’re wrapping with it your fold and will get pretty tough to work with and start fighting the tape. When this happens just run your clean fingers and even nails along the edges and creases. Pressing firmly, but not to firmly, as to damage your present.

Creating a sort of permanent press on the fold and making the paper easier to work with. It also cleans it up and make it look neater. Just make sure your hands are clean or else the firm pressure with leave all your finger residue and even ink smeared along the present.
