What a clever idea, and so beautifully executed! We recycle all paper wrapping and re-use gift bags for birthdays and Christmases, but this is much cuter Smiley. (Though it's possible to take the whole "re-usability" thing too far - I once tried making a multiple-use greetings card, which I attempted to claw back from the  recipient...)

Who would have thought - I have a blog!

I think I'll make each of my kiddos a set in a different Xmasy pattern.  I hate the mess of paper wrapping, but my kitties love it...hence my hatred LOL.

=DDD that's fabulous!

i'd be worried about my sneaky peeker cousins, though.

ah well. hide the presents i guess!

That's unbelievably cool. I can't stand the waste, either, and the only alternative I've seen is wrapping in pretty dishtowels - but people only need so many of those. The wrap is really a beautiful gift, too, and if they really loved it they could pop some cotton inside and have it for a Christmas pillow!

Adorable! We recirculate all the boxes, bows, tags, cards etc in our family. Shirt boxes from department stores that haven't existed for a decade are still making the rounds! In fact, if you get a gift that is "traditionally" wrapped in pristine paper, it means you are new, or foreign, or...we're somehow frightened of you!

This is a really attractive addition to our list of ways to present gifts to each other without resorting to regular ole paper.

Well, no...we only have it iced.

Did anyone else make any of these? I wanted to but did not have enough time. Time to create NOW! I did use a lot of fabric though but it was all wonky looking tied up with ribbons.
