Would you consider this as a service?

I'm looking into different methods of gift wrapping in order to provide a service during the holidays for those that are too busy to wrap, or are less creative. Here is a site I found, the method is called Furoshiki or bojagi... the art of wrapping with scarves.

Is this something that could possibly sell? Or am I the only one that thinks it's cool?

  • I think it's certainly worth a shot. I recently picked a book up on this actually and can't wait to get to wrapping. LOL I've never heard of anyone wrapping at home as a business but people get gifts wrapped all the time at the mall and what not. Try it, I would love to hear how you do later on. =) Perhaps there is a holiday craft bazaar in your area or something, you could set up a booth in a place like that for exposure.

  • It looks very pretty, but also costly.

    Depending on the cost I would do it! :)

    Also you could go to business parks and hit the businesses up and offer your services to them. That's a bunch of busy potential clients! :)

  • I can make the wraps from home, this would enable customers to be more specific with color choices, as well as keep my costs down.
