Step 1 – Print your photos
Step 2 – Trim the edges of your photo
Step 3 – Measure your package
Make sure you have enough paper to cover the entire box. Your neighborhood photocopy place will allow you to print 11” x17” or larger from a USB. TIP– print multiples of the same image for larger packages (see step 7). They can be tiled together or overlapped.
Step 4 – Place the photo
Step 5 – Tape into place:
Step 6 – Finishing touches:
Step 7 – Bigger Packages?
No problem! Tile your image (you can do this in a photo editor by repeating an image in a tile pattern) and print multiple sheets to fit your desired size. Trim the edges and tape the sheets together on the backside before you start to wrap.
Step 8 – Repeat for all your gifts!
Wrap it up!
- Want to take it to the next level? Print multiple copies of the same image. Line them up carefully so when they’re stacked together– they create the entire image (See photo above.) — Inspired by Gift Couture‘s hamburger wrapping paper.
- Tile photos of you and a friend throughout the year onto one page for a present wrapped with memories.
- Scan and print childhood photos of family members to personalize everyone’s gift.
