Make Your Own Photo Wrapping Paper

Here's a way to personalize all your gifts in a way no one else can.

  1. Select your favorite photos or make photos that are meaningful to you (the giver) or the recipient. For example, select photos of you and your family, home, pets, etc. Or use photos of the recipients, their favorite celebrities, etc. This is easy with digital cameras. Or download pictures from the web and print.

  2. Take these photos to a Kinkos or some place with a large color copier. Arrange the photos on scanning surface, close the cover and make as many copies as you want. Use the largest paper available, or shrink as necessary. Voila - you now have personalized wrapping paper.

You can also do this at home using your personal inkjet copier although the scanning surface is generally small. You can also scan or import the photos into graphics software, arrange the images and then print. Most home printers won't accommodate paper larger than legal size so go to a commercial copier if you want large sheets. Commercial laser copiers also produce glossy waterproof results while you'll need to be careful of moisture when handling inkjet printouts. Still, if you want to use racy or private photos, it's probably easier to do at home.
