If you REALLY want to have an outstanding Christmas or birthday gift wrapping that your children or
family will treasure.....
Find old photos of your children, family members or friends. Depending who the gift is for determines which pictures to use. Lay out a collage arrangement on your photo copier glass top and print. The number of photos to use depends on the size of your gift and size of photo paper you are printing on. If you print in black & white the paper will look older. Of course old photos will already be in black & white:-) This idea can also be used for any occasion,etc using pictures from your kids blowing out their candles, opening presents from birthday parties or family/friends get togethers of long ago!
Another fun idea for Christmas gifts instead of saying presents are from Mom, Dad or Santa is to make name tags coming up with a clever name relating to that specific gift.
Each year my kids go nuts trying to figure out what the gift is by reading who the gift is from! Of course a few were from Santa or Mom & Dad. My kids are adults now and they still enjoy it!! They've carried this
tradition on with their families.
Hope this gives you new fun ideas to try! God bless you and your families.
