This Valentine's Day, why not be kinder to the earth and use plastic free wrapping for your loved ones gift. One way to do this is FUROSHIKI, the Japanese art of wrapping gifts. Simular to oragami,except you use cloth, it is an easy simple way to wrap- you can use scarves, napkins, tableclothes whatever here is an easy video to show how via life less plastic's blog

I love furoshiki! I used them to wrap birthday gifts for Little Bug's friends last year and all the parents called to ask how to make them. They are also really useful to keep in the car for those times you forget to bring your own bags. Nothing says "dork" like whipping out a piece of fabric in the market and as Burbanmom says "tying one on"!

I love it, too. You can make your own grocery bags that way, too!!

I love this! My mother used to do it all the time with gifts and I thought she was nuts but it really is very useful!
