I stumbled upon this wonderful-witty gift wrapping idea

[via Country Living Magazine]
Inspired by Japanese Furoshiki, Playford found a new use for
a thrift shop shirt & brooch...not only it's eco-friendly,
we get 3 gifts in one! ~so clever! I was instantly CHARM-ed*
~Well...the Japanese Furoshiki is an elegant traditional cloth wrapping used for special presents or objects. The Furoshiki is certainly a gift unto itself...reusable, multi-purpose and is an essential tool in Japanese life & culture, often used as a shopping bag, wall hanging or table runner, or even as a lovely scarf! One of the symbols of traditional Japanese culture, and puts an accent on taking great care of things. Although it's an old tradition, it’s still very much popular among the Japanese and creative-stylish people in the west as well. ~Let’s take a look at various style of furoshiki, hope to get more inspirations for our own creative Holiday gift wrapping this season...
What do you think Darlingsss...
charming* gift wrapping idea no?!
I might even add a Christmas ornament or
a fresh evergreen branch from the garden...~so cuuute*
