    How to Make it:

    step1
    Choose a theme
    Find a cool motif that matches the gift, fits the recipient or has sentimental value.
    You can use silk flowers for a garden-theme present, dog photos and biscuits for a canine lover, and old love letters for an anniversary gift for your sweetheart.

    step11(11)
    Create your design
    Arrange your items carefully on the scan bed of a scanner or on a flat surface. Then, scan or take a picture of your setup.

    step12(12)
    Size it right
    An 8 X 10 print will cover many smaller gifts, but you’ll need to print multiple copies of your wrap to cover a larger present.

    step18(18)
    Wrap it up

    Place the wrap on the gift, then add a bow and ribbons, or other decorations, to complete the look.

    Variation: Use this decorative paper to cover a book, line a drawer or adorn a wall as a framed print.
