Wrapping Birthday Presents

I found a use for the 10 x 10 inch silk pocket squares. It's a perfect fit for my jewellery giftboxes that I will be gifting my sis-in-law, sister and mom for their coming birthdays. And to think I was going to make a patchwork cover with the lot. I wonder what it's original use is, handkerchiefs?

The Japanese furoshiki or Korean Bojagi is a square scarf used for a multitude of purposes, from carrying bento boxes to a light summer top. This traditional wrapping is an eco-friendly way of wrapping presents and serves as a 2nd gift for the recipient. One good way of using up any scrap cloth or scarves you have lying around the house.
