Don’t you hate it when you are wrapping last minute gifts and realize you don’t have any wrapping paper left? Or you just can’t find the perfect gift wrap for a special gift? Well, you are in luck.. I have an EASY and quick solution for you! Use a printer to create beautiful custom gift wrap.
Back in October I got a HP Photosmart 7520 printer which can print, copy, scan and fax. I knew it would be the perfect tool to create wrapping paper. To create this gorgeous cedar wrapping paper I placed cedar branches on the printer’s glass scanning bed.
Once I had the branches placed the way I wanted, I loaded up the paper tray with regular bright white printer paper. I selected the copy option on the printer. When I clicked copy, there was an option where I could select the quality. I selected the ”Best” quality.
And out came the beautiful cedar wrapping paper!
DIY Wrapping Paper
How do you like the way it turned out? Gabrielle was with me when I made the wrapping paper and she was so excited about it. She even made some herself too! She placed a bunch of buttons on the glass scanning bed and copied those to make gift wrap. Imagine all the wrapping paper possibilities that can be created with this technique! It’s really as simple as placing what you want on the printer’s glass scanning bed and pressing copy!
I can’t wait to make more! Do you have ideas of something else I could copy into gift wrap?
I hope you are having a BEAUTIFUL day!
P.S. I’ll be linking to these Parties.
