How To Giftwrap A CD in One Piece of Letter-Size Paper

PLUS! Printable "Santa Bags the Harp Lady" Giftwrap you can print out and use!

I've been making my own gift-wrap since I was a kid. This year I decided to take one of the great drawings artist Ellen Lebow made for me and turn it into giftwrap for everyone to use. A pdf version is available at left.

According to our Gift-Wrap Lab tests, you can click on the drawing at the right, which opens a PDF file of the Giftwrap. Print the giftwrap on your printer (laser printer works best, at least in our office) and - Voila! You've got specialized wrapping paper, which even includes a place to sign your name and say who the gift is for!

But ... the big trick is ... how to actually wrap a CD in that single piece of paper! Scroll down for my step-by-step tutorial, tested right here in the DHC Gift-Wrap Labs.

So now, when you buy my CDs for your friends this Holiday Season, you can giftwrap them with special Harp Lady paper!

Print Giftwrap in your own Home!
