In the video, Mila uses brown paper with gold and silver snowflakes to wrap an iPhone. She starts by bringing the bottom section of the paper up horizontally, then creates triangle flaps on each side, folding them in to create several layers to create an impressive layered pattern which her followers loved.
She wrote on her Instagram: “Add some extra cheer to your Christmas this year 🎁🎄 save this video for when you’re wrapping your Christmas gifts. My gift wrapping series is back this year and in the lead up to Christmas I’ll be sharing some fun gift wraps to make your Christmas a little bit extra special. It’s a free and easy way to share some extra joy to the loved ones in your life. This wrap was so popular last year – will you be trying out this fold? Have a magical day lovelies 🎄♥️“
One person said they were obsessed, writing, “What kind of witchcraft is this? I’m obsessed!” And another said they would love to get that as a gift, “Wouldn’t mind getting this gift. Ahhh the wrapping paper is so pretty.” And another joked, “Pro? This is me being clueless on how to wrap a regular square.”
The layers act as a perfect place to put flowers to take the gift to the next level as shown in Mila’s first viral video on the technique, which has had more than 13 million views and more than 1 million likes since it was first posted in 2020.
