How to make your own wrapping paper
- Greenery (I used cedar branches from my cedar bushes)
Step 1: To create this gorgeous cedar wrapping paper, I placed cedar branches on the printer’s glass scanning bed.
Step 2: Once I had the branches placed the way I wanted, I loaded up the paper tray with regular bright white printer paper.
Step 3: 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 gift wrap!
DIY Wrapping Paper
I use the paper to wrap my gift. I added jute twine to give the perfect touch to the gift wrap.
How do you like the way it turned out?
Use a printer’s copy option to create custom gift wrap
Gabrielle was with me when I made the wrapping paper and she was so excited about it.
She 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!
Leaves, flowers, special notes, etc.. so many things can be used as gift wrap.
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!
