A Personalized and Eco-friendly Way to Wrap Baby Gifts
Posted on 02 February 2010
Add a fun, easy, practical as well as a personalized flair to wrapping your next baby gift! This style of wrapping makes a unique and elegant presentation at a baby shower.
Try wrapping your boxed baby gift in a baby blanket instead of paper wrap, actually a very common way of wrapping gifts for any occassion in Japan called furoshiki. They actually use wrapping cloths which promote an eco-friendly alternative to gift wrapping.
A regular size receiving blanket would probably work best as it is not to thin or too thick. If your gift box is too large for a regular baby blanket, just purchase some cute baby fabric from your local store and sew the edges to make your own baby cloth custom made to fit your gift.
Place your box which contains your baby gift in the in the center of the blanket positioned diagonally and grab to opposite corners and carefully fold over to lay flat-flap style. Then take the remaining opposite corners and tie in the middle, leaving the ends stick out bow style.
There you have it, quick, easy, unique and eco-friendly!
