Furoshiki: The beautiful Art of Gift Wrapping
Today, I am going to share a technique with you that is beautiful, inexpensive and green called Furoshiki, which is the Japanese Art of gift wrapping. Recently, I loved learning Furoshiki, and I think that you will love it too. Yes, that is a bunny package, which kind of reminds you of origami, right?
I found that Furoshiki technique works will with small rectangular or square boxes. The box is usually placed in the center of the diamond.
If you are eager to get started with Furoshiki, then here is a video that you can watch showing the technique.
Below you will find a few scarves, cloth napkins and gift papers that I think would look awesome using this gift wrap technique! I also enjoy using recycling gift paper and tissue paper, which is a great way to practice Furoshiki.
I had a smooth experience with last minute shopping and finding cool gifts this year. Tomorrow, I am going to share a last minute gift guide for your holidays! Surprisingly, I found almost everything at 2 stores and 1 online retailer. This picture is a sneak peak of what I found!
