Yes, Virginia, I made my own wrapping paper, and you can too. You are only limited by the size of paper you can run through your printer. I can only run letter and legal size through (though I long -- if you'll pardon the pun -- for a 12" carriage!), so this piece is letter size. I altered a picture of my cousin's little boy (which makes him my first cousin once removed, though most people don't know stuff like that -- geez, why do I?!) and checkerboard-ed him with Garfield. It was surprisingly quick and easy. It's amazing the things a person can come up with while suffering from insomnia (or maybe coffee was not such a good idea at 11:00 PM). The down side here is that you'll need a relatively small gift in order to use paper this small. In my case I printed out two sheets, wrapped the top of the gift with one sheet and the bottom with another and then covered the side seam with a ribbon. You're really only limited by your imagination (and graphic supply). Now go have fun and report back telling me what design you made. I'll be waiting. (Seriously, I will, so don't let me down.)
