How would you like a gift wrap that makes your gift the fairest of them all? And to boot, makes Kermit one happy frog? Give up? No, Miss Piggy is not the answer. Fabric gift wraps and bags by Fabricwrapper! Read on to discover why you will love Fabricwrapper as much as I do, and win a fabric gift wrap in the contests listed below.
Why Switch from Paper to Fabric?
Why should you switch to products offered by Fabricwrapper? Two reasons. The environment and the look. In my opinion, a fabric gift wrap is so much more chic than a gift wrapped in paper wrap. Plus, giving a fabric wrapped gift is like giving two gifts in one. Your recipient can reuse that bag over and over again or give it away.
Secondly, you know how I feel about paper gift wrap and its effect on the environment. Between Thanksgiving and Christmas, our trash increases by twenty-five percent! Translated, that means an humongous amount of trash being buried in landfills. Worse yet, four million tons of our trash during the holidays is wrapping paper. That is downright disgusting. The products offered by Fabricwrapper give you an option to not only be greener, but give a stylish gift as well.
Oh, and I forgot to mention, all the fabric gift wraps are washable and made in the USA.
Anna, you got me so excited. I broke out into a cold sweat. Tell me more about their products.
I feel like Monty Hall here. Fabricwrapper offers three different fabric gift wrap products. Carol Merrill, show us what is behind door number 1.
Bags for Anything.

Carol, door number 2 please.
(The Crowd starts clapping wildly.)
I love these fabricwrappers. I haven’t seen anything else like this on the internet. The fabric is reversible and has an attached satin ribbon that you pull through a button hole on the bottom to make a beautiful bow. They come in various sizes and colors just like the bags. Great for wrapping books, DVD, gift certificates, and more. The fabricwrapper listed above has the following features:
- 11.5” x 23”
- Reversible. (See the two colors above? In the picture one side is green and the other is a Christmas tree theme?)
- 34 inches of 5/8″ ribbon on each side
- Priced at $6.99
How do you wrap a gift with one of that fabricwrapper? I thought you would ask. So, I made a video to showcase
my hands, um the fabricwrapper for you all to see. Watch my below video of how to wrap a gift with a fabricwrapper. It is easy, pezzy. Trust me.
Ode to Furoshiki
Vanna, turn the letter. Wait a minute. Wrong show. Carol? (The crowd claps but isn’t sure of what a Furoshiki really is.)
Rest assured, an Ode to Furoshiki is one of the most versatile fabric gift wraps that I know. You can wrap a box, books, and even wine glasses in so many different ways. Like all the other Fabricwrapper products, they come in different colors. The one above has the following features:
- 30” x 34″
- Wraps almost anything… In or out of a box.
- See wrap instructions for examples. This is the most standard size Furoshiki. (Or you can watch a bona fide klutz like me nimbly wrap a gift using the Furoshiki in the below video. Martha would be so proud of me.)
- Priced at $8.50
One wish I do have for the Fabricwrapper is that they use more organic or recycled cotton fabrics. However, founder, Steph Lancaster explained that “[w]e do have an organic line but they are all listed in our clearance section. We had to wash all of them and since the material is so sensitive it changed the appearance.” I know how green minded this Company is and I bet in the future they will endeavor to have more organic products.
Oh Happy Day. A Giveaway!
