This is hardly what I would proudly call craftyness and creativity, but I think it is such a neat idea that I wanted to share it with you all. Because, let's be honest, most of us crafters tend to have a lot of scrap pieces of fabrics lying around, right? =)

We are constantly striving to be more eco-friendly in our home, and wrapping up our (mainly) eco-friendly gifts in loads of paper that is then simply thrown out (or at best: used one more time before they are rubbish) didn't sit right with us. So I've been making re-usable wrappings instead. It is a mix of simple bags tied together with ribbons, and knot wraps/furoshiki that can be tied in loads of various ways depending on the shape of the gift. It looks lovely piled up under the tree, there is not cleaning up loads of papers afterwards, and no waste. Win-win for both us and nature =)
(and to be honest- doesn't it look a bit more fancy than common paper-wrapped gifts?)

So, I am sharing this now to call on all my lovely fellow crafters to do a good deed and save nature one present at a time! <3
