Photo Wrapping Paper – Creative and Versatile!
The great thing about photo wrapping paper is it’s only limited by the photos you have! In this day and age we are taking more photos than ever, so why not put them to use, get them out of the phone and into the real world – ha!
Why not use some wedding or honeymoon photos for an upcoming anniversary? Or some baby photos for Mother’s day? Get creative!
Finishing Touches for your Gift
A lovely way to finish off your photo paper wrapped gift is to add some ribbon, a bow and even a bit of green!
Including some foliage, like a pine tree branch, adds a special touch and will really make the gift pop!
Placement of your Photos
When wrapping your gift, keep a mind on where you want your key images to be prominent, don’t have them bent round corners or obscured by the bow. Use the ribbons and bows to highlight a key area.
You can keep borders on the paper, to give you some extra paper to work with when taping up.
Top Tips For Photo Wrapping Paper
- Most local office supplies stores will blow up and print out photo wrapping paper for you.
- Make sure you get the right sized wrapping paper for the item you are wrapping.
- Boxes make the ideal item to wrap, lots of flat surface areas to display your photos on. If you can place your gift in a box, I’d opt for that.
- Add ribbons and a bit of green, for a special touch.
