If you are anything like me you have a mountain of fabric that is just waiting to be used. Why not use it for gift wrap this Christmas? Here are two ideas:

Fabric Gift Bags

If you love giving gifts and are looking for a way to avoid the waste involved with traditional gift wrap, fabric gift bags just might be the perfect solution.  Not only are they environmentally friendly, but they are completely reusable, oh so easy to use, and beautiful too.  [ Via AgentGenius.com ]

Furoshiki

The form of wrapping with cloth is a Japanese tradition called Furoshiki. Once used to ease the load in carrying items, it is now often used for gift wrapping, interior decoration and more. It’s very simple, it only takes one square piece, and the colorful scarf can make a great second gift. For all the basic and advanced techniques visit the Furoshiki website and experiment!
