You know I love personalized items. Even better when you can create them just the way YOU want thehm to look (not just throwing a name or picture in there, but actually designing it yourself). That's what I came across on the Bags of Love website recently when I was creating my photo gift wrap. I was able to select the shape I wanted. I like the heart above, but I went with a traditional photograph look, completel with a white border. There are many options to select from though... I think you'll enjoy toodling around to see what they have available.
If you are working with the wrapping paper like I am, you can select the number of pictures that you want. Then you upload them, which is easy to understand and do.
I didn't choose to use any of their stickers, but on another kind of wrap I sure might. They also have a good number of these to choose from... I like that paw print for the doggie gifts, that'd be great with dog photos too. My oldest sonwould get a kick out of it, I'm sure. He is now a proud dog owner (times 2).
You can also choose how you want the photos to rest on the paper. I put some horizontal and some vertical. That way a gift doesn't have to sit any certain which way to look 'right' once a gift is wrapped.
You can see the photos are going in different directions. That's what I'm talking about above. I did that on purpose.
I actually created the paper as a gift. My SIL is in love with her family, as well she should be. :) So I knew the best gift to give her would be something unusual, something gorgeous, something she could use, something she could use to please others, and something with photos of her 'babies' both big and small.
I gave her the final product yesterday. That's her son and his baby girl in the photo above. I put a ball point pen on there so you can see how lushly huge the photos are on the wrapping paper. Cool right? Bags of Love is definitely a website to keep on your radar, now for Christmas and for upcoming Valentine's Day too! You can buy it in sheets or in a roll, and the quality is OUTSTANDING! It's nice and thick and not prone to tearing easily at all. Just exactly how you hope it will turn out when you are ordering. This gift exceeding my expectations in every way, and I recommend the site highly.
