Handmade Holiday Gifts: Wrapping Paper Framed Prints


This is a gift you could give to any friend, sister, or relative who has their own place and appreciates decor:) Its as easy as it sounds. Find some fun wrapping paper (or even wall paper) with no shine finish.

I picked out some printed paper at Midori. Its nice and think with no gloss or shine finish.
Instructions: Find a matte and frame that will compliment your paper well. (I found a great one at Pottery Barn, but usually find frames at thrift stores.) Measure and cut your paper accordingly. Tape the wrapping paper to the back of the matte frame using acid free tape if possible. This is a fun way to personalize a gift for a loved one. You can get a couple prints out of one gift wrap sheet or roll.Would love to see your outcome if you choose to make! (Last weeks handmade holiday gift here.)
Love, Anna

P.S. Last call for sponsors for the IHOD Gift Guide! Only a few spots left. Lots of exposure guaranteed:) Please email for info.
