Pretty slick!
I showed this to Mrs Hoot and she was moderately impressed. We might look into learning this technique, but at our age, old habits and ways are hard to change.

I used to be a racist, but I don't have much interest in it since Dale Earnhardt got killed.

I learned that from a Japanese YouTube video a few years ago. Then I forgot how.

That was the best video I have seen for explaining that method.

ABC's "World News Now" had it in a segment early Thursday morning, but I had seen it a couple years ago too. In a previous life I worked at a mall's gift wrap service (buy something in the mall and we girls wrapped anything for free...thank goodness I wasn't the one who got the canoe!). We had a quick way of folding, not 2 seconds worth, but the end result was oh so much neater looking. Presentation, you know. I suspose if you're only going to put it in your drawer it might not matter...

For those whose manual dexterous makes this process a practical impossibility, check this out.

You can also buy them ready made.
