How to tie ribbon on a gift without twisting it

 Don't you hate that stupid twist on the back of a gift? Well here is how you can tie a ribbon and avoid that!

Here's my gift, wrapped (using my kid's scribbles artwork)

Use just over 5 times the width of ribbon, cutting each end on an angle.

 Hold your ribbon about 1/5 of the way in, at the centre of the gift.

Wrap it once, being careful not to twist.

 Now twist here - on the top of the gift

 Bring the ribbon around the back, to the front (without twisting it)

 Now tuck that end around your twist

 And tie it!

 Then tie a perfect bow (unlike this one)

And here's the back - smooooooth!
