I use Japanese wrapping cloths: Furoshiki rather than gift bags like the links above.

I make furoshiki from squared-off fat quarters. Sometimes they come back wrapping gifts given to me and sometimes the fabric turns up in handmade gifts I receive.

Would three sizes of furoshiki and wrapping instructions meet the requirements of this swap?

I think that if they are just cut squares of fabric with no finished edges - that it would be difficult to accept - but I think with finished edges that it would be acceptable ... I would include the link so your partner would understand the possibilities ....I do understand that most would not have finished edges but I think this helps with how much they can be reused
