Collage Wrapping Paper

You put all that effort into finding the perfect gift. Now, it’s time to think about the wrapping. Sure, you could go the easy route and pick up a package of roll-o-wrap, or you can devote time to making a statement. If the latter is what you are aiming for, there are plenty of options from which to choose.

My favorite is to make custom collage paper. You cut out pictures and phrases and add small objects such as buttons, pins, charms and any fun memorabilia to fill in the white space, creating a flat assemblage. For a slick finish, have laser copies made (Staples’ are 39 cents each), or if you are in a pinch, use your home computer printer. The paper can be used for anything from gift-wrap to card-making, scrapbooking, decoupage and more.



1. Set flat items on your scanner and scan. Print or upload to your desktop.

2. Fill in with text, photos, sequins, etc.


3. Print it out and make color copies.
