I was so inspired by Fox on the Run's Tumblr photo that I decided to make some of my own to share with my friends and family. I also wanted to share the project with you. I love this project because it allows you to tailor your gift wrapping specifically to the person you are giving the gift to. In this DIY you will see that you can select a photo of your choice to put onto the paper bag with a wooden clothespin to make it look so festive.
So first we will start off as always with the materials you would need for this project.
- Paper bags, with or without straps
- Photos (either printed from the computer or any other photos you choose to use)
- Wooden Clothespins
- Tissue paper
Find a photo you like on the computer. I used Weheartit.com because I am always so inspired by the photos that users post. I saw a bunch that I liked. When doing it this way I recommend choosing a bunch and printing them out then make a decision because there are so many good photos on there you might get overwhelmed! (Like I did). Then print out the photos you choose and cut them out. I left a little white border around my photos so they looked framed.

Collect your paper bag and clothespin
Gift tags are optional, I bought these from a craft fair a couple years ago. They look homemade and add to the charm of the brown paper bag.
Collect some tissue paper to wrap your gift
Use your clothespins to secure the photo onto the paper bag.
