On My Bookshelf

Today's book is reviewed in preparation of the upcoming holiday season--Ruby Star Wrapping by Melody Miller and Allison Tannery. The basis of the book is the Japanese concept of gift wrapping--where the wrapping and the thoughtfulness put in the process of gift wrapping are more important than the gift itself.

The authors advocate for using materials that can be re-purposed for future use or wrapping that re-uses or upcycles materials. While most of the project are fabric based, several of the project use paper or can be adapted using paper products. 

This is an excellent book for anyone interested in gift wrapping, recycling, fabric, sewing, or paper goods. Highly recommended.
