How to wrap a present (C style)

C knows how to wrap presents. It's a gene he get's from Mama E. He has even been known to make me upwrap and rewrap a gift that will have both of our names on it.  I went through an entire roll of wrapping paper for Matt Alten's wedding. And it was a box not something with curves.  I was fine with the first product. C, not so much. 

An entire month and a half ago when we threw Amber's bridal shower, I neglected to wrap the present and attempted to do so right before church (which was right before the shower. The reason being that I purchased bowls that did not come in a nice square or rectangle box and since they were too heavy for a gift bag I was at a loss as to how to wrap them.

I tried once.

And failed.

Then C steped in (with a measuring stick).

I'd explain what's going on here, but obviously if I knew that he wouldn't have to rewrap my gifts.

Several minutes later (he's not quick, but he's good) the bowls were perfectly wrapped.

But it did take him two tries.

The furrowed Elsea brow, intense concentration, measuring, re-measuring to the Nth degree. Slow, yes. Meticulous to be sure. Results:'spot on'. That's why he married you!
