Japanese fabric gift wrappingMake a New Year's resolution not to buy wrapping paper this year.  Use fabric instead and follow YouTube demonstrations on how to wrap presents in the Japanese style.  Purchase fabric cheaply either on-line, or find off-cuts at haberdashery shops or charity shops in Canterbury.   No more wastage of paper and no more sticky tape!
