 I've recently encountered the most lovely world of Japanese gift wrapping, also called Furoshiki. After seeing a few videos of the method, I had to give it a try myself and found it so fun to do. I love the look of wrapping gifts using some linens and even this Christmas fabric from JOANN that gives it a look right out of a Charles Dickens Christmas story.

The beauty of this wrap is you can use any of your fabric pieces large or small and after the gift is open, fold the fabric and place back in your stash. No throwing paper in the garbage and you can reuse it every birthday and Christmas.

And if you do themed Christmas, then you can use fabric that matches your theme and reuse it every year. There might not be any tearing of paper, but unwrapping fabric can still be just as satisfying. I promise! Besides, there is something satisfying about throwing less away and being able to reuse it over and over again.

I made a video below to show the 4 different ways that I've learned to fold. They are all very easy and look so lovely. The best part is you don't need anything to tie them together. Of course, ribbon does look nice, but you can easily just use the fabric to tie them together.
