In yesterday’s post about multi-teatowel-tasking, I mentioned the idea of using a tea towel to wrap a gift, furoshiki-style, and here are DIY step-by-step instructions letting you know exactly how to do it (using, in this case, the When Everyone Came To Tea tea towel in rosebud):
Step 1: With the print facing down, fold the tea towel into a square. Place the gift in the centre of the tea towel.
Step 2: Take the corner labelled C and fold it to the centre, across the box.
Step 3: Take the corner labelled A and fold it to the centre, over the other corner.
Step 4: Taking corners D and B, lift them up above the box…
Step 5: … and secure them together with a rubber band.
Step 6 (below): Add the finishing touch with twine or ribbon and a gift tag, and prepare to wow a lucky someone with your creative furoshiki wrapping style.
