DIY Photo Wrapping Paper
Here is a quick and fun DIY Photo Wrapping Paper. Some homemade wrapping paper perfect for all those Project Handmade Christmas Presents.
The perfect wrapping paper for gifts for those doting, cheek-pinching grandparents. The only problem arises in them not wanting to tear the paper to open the presents.
This paper is so much fun AND it is unbelievably easy to make.
I used PicMonkey to create my main image.
Once you are in PicMonkey, you hover over the Design menu at the top. All of these canvas options will open up.
I used the 8x10 canvas.
Then I used my very "favoritist" (totally a word) feature in PicMonkey. The "Your Own" overlay options. Here you can overlay your own photos and images. I used this feature all the time. Last year I used it to make a grandparent gift. I made the grandmas Personalized Notepads.
I opened photo after photo. I changed sizes on some. I changed angles. I basically just slapped them all on there in collage type fashion.
Then I saved it to the computer. After I saved it, I opened it once again in PicMonkey. Then I changed the photo from color to black and white.
Once the image was saved, I saved it to a thumb drive and took myself over to Staples. I got an engineer print in 24"x36" for under $4.00.
Your wrapping paper will look a little something like this...with your own babies sweet faces all over it.
All that is left is to wrap up those grandparent presents up.
Then wait for the squeals of "oohs and ahhs". They will come. I promise.
