Cutcaster DIY: Make your own giftwrap

What is better than handmade for the holidays? Put a little extra special DIY into your gift giving by creating your own gift wrap pattern. Purchase one of our Christmas pattern vector graphics, add personal messages or images and then layout multiple of the pattern until it is about 3′x2′.  Then upload it to Kinko’s or your local copy center and let them know you want it printed on their blueprint oversize machine. It might take a little more design effort, but our Christmas illustrations can make great wrapping paper too!
