Holiday Wrap #7

Wrapped and tied with: A cloth napkin
Topped with: A paper tag

Wrapping gifts with fabric is an art form in and of itself. The Japanese call these fabric wraps furoshiki. You can use squares of fabric, cloth napkins, and scarves as wrappers. This pretty napkin is from West Elm. I learned this method of wrapping from a book titled Wrapagami by Jennifer Playford. Follow one of her video tutorials to see how easy it is.

This card stock flower shape is made by a Fiskars punch and attached with double-sided tape.

  1. Furoshiki Says:

    I like to think of Furoshiki not so much as a “thing” but a philosophy. Most people can use whatever they cloth in their house to wrap presents they just don’t usually do it.

    We have a section on FuroshikiForum.com for learning all sorts of techniques for Furoshiki.
