Depending on the shape of your gift, you can choose from the many different styles of furoshiki wrapping. Below, however, we will show you just one of the many different ways Furoshiki can be applied to your holiday gifts this year.

1. Choose your jar and pick a piece of square fabric large enough to wrap around it. Place the jar in the middle of the fabric square.
2. Pick up two corners situated diagonally from each other. Tie the corners together tightly. You will see that you have two “bunny ears”.
3. Hide the “ears” by tucking them under the knot.
4. Repeat the process with the two remaining corners, and tie tightly.
5. You’re done! That wasn’t so hard, was it?
6. All that's left to do is attach a tag using some string, and write down the instructions and name of the recipient!
