This would be an amazing way to personalise your product deliveries, maybe sending a photo book with wrapping paper made out of images from the session, or a painting wrapped in matching paper. The possibilities are pretty endless!

The way you choose images affects the outcome hugely, and it's so much fun trying out different ways to design your wrapping paper. I went with one where the tones on our #hlhinstaquotes complimented each other, and I really like the pretty (and pretty inspirational!) paper they produced. For the other paper I went with my own hand lettering from the Inspire your Inbox series, and I really like the monochrome look, too. Next time I think I'll try a load of watercolour splotches, which would make for a lovely abstract paper.
