    Very beautiful! I started collecting reusable (new and thrifted) tote bags years ago - several years back, I started a new tradition of putting Christmas Gifts together in the bags, giving each person or family an extra gift, being a reusable tote!

    I haven't bought wrapping paper for over 20 years, as I save ours and, now, several family members and friends collect their Christmas morning "trash" and give it to me!

    Thank you for the beautiful tutorial; I love Mandalas and I have some tote bags that have logos on them I have wanted to cover with something prettier- your mandala idea is just the thing!
