    wrap it in tissue paper or with tissue paper

    In the ditionary, it says I should use in here. Seemingly, it also makes sense to use with here. Do people say "I will rap it with tissue paper?"

    I would also use in, but I wouldn't think with sounded particularly strange.

    Thanks for both of you. I think I'd better stick to in. I must have been influenced by my mother tone.
