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

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

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


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 add text in several programs.

My first package I wrapped was large. I ordered an engineer or architecture print (only prints b&w) but it's still awesome. I adjusted the margins, or resize the canvas or photo depending on what program you use to 24x36.

Kinda hard to see on white background so here is another photo below.

UPDATE: They are both the same store now and you can order online! Yay!!


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.

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

She loves pink so I went with a bright colorful bow. 

Turned out so awesome!

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

I love the colors! 

Her favorite color is blue so I made a bunch of variations and text.

This was our BIG present for my big boy turning 12!!!! iPhone fits perfectly with regular 8.5 x 11 copy paper!

So awesome!!!

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

UPDATE: I had to wait to post this one 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 photographer - mama-razzi -shutterbug :)

Paper didn't quite fit so I printed two. Wasn't as clean as I like but I really wanted it in color. Next time I'll plan ahead and print 11x17.

It still looked great. I left the seam on the bottom.

So pretty!

Hope this gives you some inspiration! Try it and share photos!

  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!
