DIY Personalized BIRTHDAY wrapping paper! Gift, Present - Extra special touch!

Personalized wrapping paper! I love anything personalized and I love wrapping and now both together!!!! I don't think the excessive explanation points really capture how excited I am. :)

PERSONALIZED BIRTHDAY WRAPPING PAPER!!!!

 I saw THIS post and knew I had to give it a try.



OOOOOOHHHHHH!!!! I LOVE IT!!!!!!

For all the packages I used several fonts and just made rows of text. For that I used an old 2006 editing program that came on my pc free. (It's just so dang easy I don't like to open anything else) You should be able to do this with several programs.



My first package I was wrapping was large so I needed to print large. It's called an engineer or architecture print (only prints b&w) but it's awesome. In your editing program adjust the margins, or resize the canvas or photo depending on what program you use to 24x36.


Kinda hard to see on white so here is another photo


OFFICE DEPOT vs. OFFICE MAX 

OFFICE DEPOT does online ordering.  After you upload ((don't freak at the $99 price)) just modify output size and select architecture D print 24x36. Price should drop to a couple bucks.

OFFICE MAX will only print orders on this paper via email or at least my store location.
Email address. sevicescenter{{store number}}@officemax.com

I ended up using Office Max because the location was closer but the online ordering would be so super easy with Office Depot. 




Since it's only black and white I went with a bright colorful bow. 


Turned out so awesome!

Next I had a few gifts that were smaller so I just printed these at home.


Love the color!!!


You could send these to print as well a little larger in color but I haven't tried that yet. 


This is a pez despenser that went along with another present. Fit perfectly!


This was a BIG present small in size. My big boy turned 12!!!! iPhone fits perfectly too!





So awesome!!!


I'm so giddy about these! EVERYTHING personalize from now on!


This one was for my friends bday this month and had to wait to post so she won't see her gift early :) Oh this is something she will love and definitely try for sure. She is like me about personalized stuff and loves making gifts with a special touch.


She's a fellow photograper - mama-razzi -shutterbug :)


Paper didn't quite fit so I printed two. Wasn't as clean as I like but I wanted color.


Still looked great. I left the seam on the bottom.


Oooooh Ahhhh! 



Hope this gives you some inspiration! Try it!

  2. I had to come back to comment on this. Since I saw this post, small packages have been getting this personalized wrapping treatment from my home computer. Today I did my first B/W Engineering print (Staples). It looks Ah-mazing!!! Silly thing to get excited about but this is SUCH A GOOD IDEA. Thanks!
