Extra Special Gift Wrap


Do you ever just want to make a wrapped package so special that the person getting it knows even before they open it that they are special to you? Well, I have a hard time spending money on expensive papers and bows, although I do love them. So, I decided to borrow my friend Melanie's idea.

Here's what to do. Go to your photos and find the perfect one. In my mind this means it is an embarrassing photo, a photo that the recipient has never seen before, a photo that is a clue to what's inside or a special photo that you love of the person. Take these photos and either scan and print or go have color copies made. Then add them to your inexpensively wrapped gifts. I like to add a little sentiment to make the lucky gift getter smile!
