my boyfriend wrapped my birthday/christmas presents in scrap fabric, although he just used tape to hold it all together.
eighties hip-hop tapes ahoy Smiley

These are so neat.  I picked up some Christmas fabric on clearance, and I plan on making some for next year.

wanting to do everything is *no excuse* for not doing anything.

ok, this has been around for a while, but I just saw it and thought I'd add my 2 cents... my family has been using cloth bags to wrap presents in for longer than I can remember.  We've got a huge selection (accumulated over the years) of simple pillow-case style bags in various sizes and all sorts of cotton print fabrics that you just slip the present into and tie shut with a bit of ribbon, lace, or yarn.  (some of the old standbys have bells and things tied on them, too)  It's a good use for that cool holiday fabric you can't think of a project for (or the extra 10" scrap from your latest dress or quilt project) and if everyone else has used all the good bags on christmas eve, you can whip up some new ones easily.  And when you get tired of the assortment you've got, use them to wrap presents that go outside the household, and make some new ones. 

Not as glamorous as your present bag, but much more versitile.

That's really amazing! I would have never thought of that! Oh my gosh, all the wrapping paper that's used during the holiday seasons...I know i'm going to be making a lot of these during the summer for the use during the winter! Amazing!!
