The Hon Tsutsumi wrapping technique is mainly used to wrap two books of the same size as a gift, but you can also use it to carry your books around.
This technique is primarily used for wrapping two books but can also be employed for any other two items of a similar shape.
How to fold the Hon Tsutsumi
Ensure that the item you would like to wrap is at least 1/5 of the diagonal length of the cover you are using.
The ideal sized COVER for wrapping two medium-sized books is size L (100cm x 100cm | 39.4’’ x 39.4’’).
Spread the cloth in front of you, placing the side of the fabric that should be visible later, face down.
Position the items in opposite corners and fold the corners upward.
Begin folding the items over until they reach the center of the fabric.
If you want to ensure the items are arriving at the intended spot in the middle of the fabric, place the items there first and roll them backward to find the perfect starting point.
Take both ends and fold them over the wrapped items.
It's important to leave some space in the middle to twist the ends around.
Turn the bundle around.
Twist the ends and knot them together.
Now, the items are not only beautifully and securely wrapped but can also be easily transported.
