This hit our radar a little late for Kwanzaa but it’s an interesting idea: reusable cloth wrapping paper. The company, called WrapAgain, offers multiple sizes and styles. The stuff is completely reusable and includes ribbons for tying.
Here’s how to use them:
All Wrapagains are roughly square. Each has two corners with ribbon permanently attached.
Lay Wrapagain out flat with the side you ultimately want facing out face down (just like you would a conventional package) and ribbon corners positioned at “Noon” and “six.” Wrapagain should be laying at a 45-degree angle to your table edge.
Position item to be wrapped in the center of the wrapagain with the long side (if there is one) pointing to the ribbon corners.
Fold in the non-ribbon corners first, adjusting your centering, if needed. Fold in the ribbon corners. Flip package over and tie the ribbons together in a bow.
Before you say I can do this at home with a dishtowel and some twist ties, remember: you didn’t think of this and the colors are pretty.
