In place of using paper to wrap gifts, this tissue paper DIY craft from the Bloom, Bake & Create blog proposes the use of fabric instead.

Using a plain fabric cloth and bleeding tissue paper, this project creates a tie-dye cloth that would make a beautiful alternative to wrapping paper. In order to create the dynamic fabric, the simple craft involves arranging pieces of tissue paper onto a cloth and wetting them with a few spritzes of water. Once dried, the fabric can be ironed and dunked in cold water to set. Considering that the colors come off quite bright, if you tend to reuse tissue paper for several gifts before throwing it out, this is a clever way to make the most out of a tissue paper purchase.
