HP Sprout Wrapping Paper with Spoonflower

A year or so ago, a friend of mine designed and made her own crib sheets for her little girl.  I loved them but have absolutely no talent in the sewing department, so when I saw that wrapping paper could be designed on Spoonflower, too, I thought it would be another perfect way to use my new Sprout by HP!

So, I brought out what was left of the Trader Joe's schoolbook cookies and got to work.  

I simply laid out cookies to cover the workspace and then captured the image with the camera.  Once that was done, I readjusted a few of them to better fill the space, and saved the project.
I saved the project as a jpeg and then went the the Spoonflower site and uploaded my design.  Within a matter of minutes, I had the design tweaked and was ready to order.

I ordered a roll and plan to use it for baby gifts...a neutral color/pattern finished off with a blue or pink bow!
And, then for fun, I did a quick birthday design, too.

And...the final result of the baby wrapping paper:

I have a feeling this might become somewhat of an addiction.  The ease and the fun...thanks Sprout!
