Japanese design firm, Nendo, came up with this simple but amazing take on gift wrapping. Sure, you could just pop your gift in a regular tote and call it a day, but this just takes it to another level.
Unfortunately, it’s only available in Japan. So, I decided to try and make one myself. I added grommets to a basic pouch, stitched a ribbon to the bottom part and that was about it. Fold your gift inside the bag, wrap the ribbon around and tie. Just tuck the end of the ribbon under for a cleaner look.
