DIY It: Tea Towel Gift Wrap

Making the wrapping part of the gift itself is a great way to ensure nothing goes to waste.

We love this cute tea towel wrapping idea from Abby Rudakov of Things for Boys — which is perfect for cookbooks, kitchen gadgets, and all those special gifts for the foodie in your life.

“Paper wrapping always makes me sad when I see the huge pile after everyone has unwrapped their gifts!” Rudakov said. Her inventive wrapping solution takes only a few minutes to make, and your friends are sure to love it.

For step-by-step instructions on how to do it yourself, head to Things for Boys.
