Forget expensive wrapping paper anyone can buy in stores. Photojojo has provided a tutorial that will teach you how to create your own photographic paper. Give your loved ones something original while giving your images a new lease on life.

First, you'll need a printer that can make A3 prints or larger, a pair of scissors, adhesive tape, and ribbons or bows. While photographic paper is better quality, regular copy paper is preferred as it's thinner and easier to work with when wrapping your gift.

Next, measure your package to determine the size needed and make borderless prints for a more professional feel. If your printer can't accommodate your gift, try your neighborhood copy place for larger sizes.

When that's done, all you need to do is wrap. It's important that you align your paper in such a way that the most visually attractive part of the image is facing the top or front.

After you're done securing the box with tape, top it off with an elegant ribbon or a bow, and there you have it!
