Every holiday we search for a signature way to wrap our gifts for each other, family and friends. Since we're always looking for new ways to use old things we often look to our collections for inspiration. This year we decided to use color copies of vintage portrait paintings to add unexpected personality to each gift we share.

Vintage portrait paintings (originals of the paintings pictured above can be found here.)
11x17 color copy or print out
Simple White String
You can directly color copy an old portrait or bring a digital file to a copy center to be printed for you. If your gifts are large that 11 x 17, don't worry, you can print the image larger on multiple pieces of paper and cleanly tape them together. For a simple finishing touch, we used thin bakers twine to add a bow. For extra fun, you can cut out tags in the shape of speech bubbles and add a message or recipients name.
