A photo gift makes a great alternative to a bow. You can attach a holiday picture of each recipient to the top of the gift. Not only will it be a nice addition to the present but it will also make it easy to distinguish who gets each gift. This is especially nice if you have a tree surrounded with lots of presents.
For this design, I created a frame for the picture with reused tissue paper. I cut the tissue paper slightly larger than the photo, crumbled it into a ball and smoothed it out to create a textured look. I wrapped the gift in pretty paper, used leftover ribbon pieces to wrap around the gift and attached the photo with the tissue paper frame with double sided tape. I then embellished the gift with holiday accents.
This is a very is easy way to decorate a gift so it is unique and beautiful!
