holiday DIY of the day #7: felt gift wrap

It's so easy to produce loads of waste over the holidays between presents, packaging food to take to parties, decorating, and, well, lots of things.  Rachel at Heart of Light has a clever--and definitely pretty--way of reducing the massive amounts of paper one can go through during the holidays with reusable felt gift wrap.  With just some quick stitches, maybe two minutes of work on a machine or a few more by hand, you can have these nice pouches to carry your gifts in.  Felt is also great for protecting gifts that are more fragile and the time put into the packaging can make even a simple gift more meaningful.

So head on over here and take a look, then try some yourself!
