Gift Wrapping?

In an industry that isn't always eco-friendly, it's always nice to hear of different ways to reduce, reuse and recycle! Hoffman Fabrics has shared new ways to be eco-friendly during this holiday season.

I'm not sure about you, but I never have all of my holiday wrapping finished till just before the deadline... so this year there's still time to give these tips a try.

We're passing along this tutorial on using fabric as gift wrap that Hoffman shared and tips on staying green!

This video is a long one, but it goes over different styles of wrapping with fabric for different sizes of boxes. And the great part is you can re-use it again next year!

The creators of the video, Quilt Addicts Anonymous, also has numerous videos of tutorials and tips & tricks. A great resource!

They even write that a company selling fabric wraps for presents has seen a 20% increase in sales since 2018....hmmm something to think about there!
