PARK CITY -- A Park City woman has received national honors for her gift wrapping ability.

Anne Erickson out-wrapped seven other contestants in New York City on Friday, winning the Scotch Tape wrapping contest. She even wrapped a 7-foot sailboat!

"It's like a dream that I've played over and over in my head, but it actually happened; and I'm really in shock. I can't believe it actually happened," Erickson said.

The contestants were judged on three criteria: appearance, technique and speed.

Erickson walked away with a $10,000 cash prize for her quick work.
