5. Furoshiki Gift Wrap How-to (Japanese Scarf Gift Wrap)
How to Make the Gift Wrap: my 1,2,3-step tutorial:
Furoshiki, the traditional Japanese cloth wrapping technique.
1. The gift wrap technique used here is every so simple. Knot the top and bottom flap. Knot the left and right flap.
2. Braid the 3 silk scarf-ends together and fold them into a rosette.
3. Add a twig with berries.
Tip: if you have an odd shaped gift, place it in a regular open cardboard box and then wrap the cloth around the box.
For kind of gifts: ideal for larger, hard to wrap gifts, and a grouping of things. In Japan, this type of wrap is traditionally used for food.
