All Wrapped Up.

I have been doing a little research on present wrapping, the theme for our next craft evening at Wickle. In this day and age we are all trying to use less packaging so I thought it might be a good idea to bring a little of this thinking to our Christmas wrapping.
My first thoughts were of the way they wrap things in cloth in Japan. They do (did?) this often instead of using a bag to carry their groceries. I find wrapping bottles really difficult and I never end up with anything exciting or beautiful so I was delighted to find that the Japanese have a great solution. Here are my efforts. It took me less than a minute to do and I used scarves that I got from a charity shop that cost about the same as a piece of posh paper. Look at the useful handles!
