Gift-wrapping the green way
Try recycling some of these old standbys rather than reaching for a new roll of gift wrap. You use your creativity when you choose a gift, so why not extend the fun to the wrapping?

Eco-friendly gift wrapping
Here's our take on furoshiki, a traditional Japanese wrapping cloth. We used the 5-inch-deep bottom of an Ikea panel sheer. The scrap, not quite 15 inches wide, was knotted in the middle, with each side wrapped and twisted to form a fabric rose. The ends are tucked in, no glue needed; a bit of pink grosgrain ribbon forms a floral center.
