Tarot cards can be wrapped in a cloth when you're travelling, to protect their energy, or even if you've lost the original box and need to store them safely. If you've ever wondered how to wrap your Tarot cards, here is a quick tutorial.
What you'll need:
Your Tarot cards or Oracle card deck and a small to medium-sized cloth. I am using the silk Cosmic Ocean Tarot Cloth, which is 26" x 26", but a smaller piece of fabric will work just as well. Silk is the preferred material to work with for storing Tarot cards, as it is light, soft and strong.
Spread your cloth face down, and rotate it so that one of the corners is pointing up. Place the Tarot cards horizontally in that corner.
Starting from the top, fold the cloth over the cards down towards you. Make sure the cards fit tightly in the cloth and there is no room for movement.
Keep folding the cloth over until you reach the center of the cloth, halfway down. Keep the cards fitting tightly in the fabric.
Take the right corner and fold it over in half towards the center where the deck is placed. If the end is long, you can tuck it in underneath the fold.
Now bring the left corner of the cloth over to the right side, cutting the triangle in half once again.
Here is how to wrap the rest of the fabric around the Tarot deck: take the bottom piece and fold it underneath the deck, pointing up. Take the side piece and fold it underneath the deck towards the left. Tuck in the ends in one of the "pockets" created by the edges of the fabric, or tie them if you can.
That's it! Now if you ever lose the box for your cards or just want to better protect your Tarot cards, you can wrap them up in your favourite cloth and store them in a beautiful way.
