You can find a full tutorial for how to wrap your gifts onJulep, but the DIY is simple: Place the item in the middle of a square piece of fabric laid on a diagonal, fold the top and bottom corners together over the gift, and the tie the two remaining corners together in a knot. For a finishing touch, you can try and align the patterns on the corners, or top it all off with a big pom-pom or gift tag.
Using fabric instead of traditional paper works on so many levels. It’s eco-friendly, and your friends can reuse the fabric for a project or for the next gift they give. And you can totally customize your present by buying the perfect pattern or print to stand out under the tree.
