Large print photo wrapping paper

Father’s Day is coming up soon, wedding season is upon us, and graduations are in full swing. Here is a simple idea to make your gifts special this season- wrap them in oversized printed photos.

Use sweet photos of the kids for dad, embarrassing pictures from your favorite grad’s youth, or early dating photos for the newlyweds you know. Every gift will feel special when you show a bit of history behind it, and this wrapping is a perfect spot to display it.

    this is about the best idea I’ve seen in years, and the timing is perfect. I just got a bunch of old photos from my Dad and my uncle to scan. Thank you!

  • […] Instead of purchasing paper to wrap a grad gift, why not make your own?! Using a fun photo that the high school graduate will enjoy, have your local photo shop print it off on engineering paper. It’s super affordable and so memorable.
