How to Make it:

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.
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.
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.
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.
