Wrap Gifts In Fabric To Save Money And Reduce Waste

Wrap Gifts In Fabric To Save Money And Reduce Waste

Every year, millions of gifts are given wrapped in disposable paper that gets ripped apart and thrown away. Save yourself some trouble and give a uniquely-wrapped present by tying it up in a fabric bow.

As craft blog My Own Labels points out, you can use a small piece of fabric to make an impressive-looking gift. More specifically, the type of fold they use is based on the Japanese technique called furoshiki. While the method is usually used to carry regular parcels, it’s fantastic for wrapping gifts, and it allows you to re-use the wrapping again next year without precariously pulling apart paper and tape.
