{Create} For the not so creative

I am linking up with Marcia. Go check out the beautiful Gift Wrapping Kits she made (if you have not seen it)

The last thing I created was food (gourmet ice-cream, marble cake and brownies), but that doesn’t count.  So I will go with the second last thing I made – Personalised Wrapping Paper from pictures I took. It was super easy and super quick.

Here are the 10 easy steps in pictures

take loads of pictures or just the one you want to use

1. Take loads of pictures or just the one you want to use

Decide on which of your numerous pictures to use

2. Decide on which of the numerous pictures to use

Did a Print Screen (print scrn) and pasted in Paint

3.  Take a Print Screen (print scrn) and paste in Paint. Cut out the portion of the picture you want to use

Cut out the portion of the picture you want to use

4. Paste cut out portion of picture into MS PowerPoint. There will be some white spaces after you have pasted

Stretch to fill the entire power point slide/page, this is the same page as the previous picture

5. Stretch to fill the entire power point slide/page, this is the same page as the previous picture (after I stretched it)

Personalise as you deem fit

6. Personalise as you deem fit. This was obviously for a Christmas gift

7. Print out in colour. I used A3 size paper so it could fit nicely. You might need to use a bigger or smaller paper size or multiple papers depending on what you are wrapping.  A3 paper was perfect for the gifts I was giving away.

8. Make sure to select “Scale to Fit Paper” otherwise the picture would only be in the middle

9. Wrap the gift

9. Wrap the gift (Obviously)

10. Deliver (or Post) gift

This is create for the not so creative. All you need is a picture, amateur computer skills, a computer, a picture, A3 paper and  a colour printer
