by Grace Bonney

DIY Winter Scene Painting Gift Toppers 3
I’m mining the Rijksmusuem’s collection again for the loveliest, snowiest winter scenes — perfect for another easy gift wrap idea. In fact, you may not even need to do any supply shopping to put this idea into action, and each package is literally a work of art. –Mandy Pellegrin

The full how-to continues after the jump!

MATERIALS:
-photo paper
-satin ribbon

TOOLS:
-home printer
-craft knife
-ruler
-cutting mat

Directions:

1. Download and print out your favorite winter scene paintings from the Rijks Studio. I’ve rounded up over 40 beautiful works here. Size appropriately for your packages by adjusting the % scale in the print dialogue box or importing and resizing in a word processing program.

2. Trim each painting leaving a 1/4″ white border.

3. Cut slits just wider than your satin ribbon in the center-top and bottom of each painting.

  • this is so cute, I think i’ll use this idea for the front of my scrap book, it has such a plan cover.
    Not anymore…
    thanks guys :)

  • OMG, I saw something entirely different when I first glanced at the pictures, before I read the description and instructions.
    I thought you were using small covered canvas with the pictures and ribbon around it using them as pictures on the walls.
    I love your idea, but I’m also going to use it as pictures on the walls. Perhaps seasonal specific.

  • @KAI I found this on Pintrest and thought something similar. I like the idea of wrapping paper, but I’d much rather have it has wall art.

  • I know this is an old post but I didn’t see it before today. Beautiful! Can I ask you where the cutting mat is from – and in what size? I can only seem to find them in small sizes and not in this fine color :) BR,
