On my weekly tour to my thrift store, my Haus und Hof Trödelladen, I came across this gehäkelte Deckchen, crocheted doily. A big basket full of them. So this gift wrapping idea came to my mind as I like to recycle and to impress with artisan wrapped presents. You can also use old hankies. Think Furoshiki.
This looks very elegant with the lavish ribbon and its muted beige colour.
