Urban Practicality: Old Shirts and Tie = Wrapping Paper

An old blown-out shirt and a frayed tie.

 A few stitches with doubled thread.

 Buttoned up.

 A tie bow, not a bow tie. Brooks Brothers, college years purchase.

Off to the post office.


  1. I recently saw this in a local holiday display. Very clever. I'd love to receive my Christmas gives in this manner.

  2. Pretty cool! Much nicer than my funny pages wrappers.

  3. This a little like Martha gone mad. Give the fellow a Blue Peter Badge!

  4. This is brilliant! Now, if I hadn't just tossed out some of my frayed collar/worn-out shirts I would have all my holiday my gift-wrapping taken care of...

  5. I'd thought about reusing old shirts, but for pillow cases, instead, but I had no idea how to really go about it. You've given me a good idea with the stitches photo.
    Thank you!

  6. First in history to see this style of wrapping. Thumbs up! Next time use Cool Polo Shirts


Let's keep it clean... but if you DO have to get foul, at least give it a bit of wit. Also, advertising disguised as comments will be deleted, unless it is clever.
