MiniEco is a wonderful blog run by the stylish and talented Kate Lilley. (See the Apartment Therapy profile of her here!) Her blog is a constant source of printable inspiration - which is perfect for nerds like me who love an easy DIY that can be completed in an afternoon. That's why these papers are so perfect.
The printable wrapping papers are simple, downloadable PDFs that come in a wide range of designs. Any standard printer should be able to handle the job. Her gray designs come in four cool patterns including Space Invaders, Reindeer or crowns. She's also done a set in black with one design featuring one of my favorite villains of all time: Pac Man Ghosts. how to make cut out cards. They have a definite 8bit feeling to them and are sure to stand out from the store bought designs. (Images: MiniEco)
