Turn your Instagram photos into custom wrapping paper

What if you could turn your fave snaps (the ones with the most likes, obviously) into personalized gift wrap? That’s what PicPaperie aims to do.

Turn your artsy photos (a.k.a. selfies) into wrapping paper this holiday season. PicPaperie is an app seeking funding via Indiegogo—and the campaign ends on Wednesday (November 20). The way it works is pretty simple: Submit a photo via Instagram, Facebook or e-mail, select a pattern, and the San Francisco–based company will print it on high-quality paper. Days later you'll receive your customized paper in the mail. This isn't the only service that turns Instagram photos into real-life things (see: magnets, prints et al.) but it's pretty perfect with the holidays coming up.

If you want to contribute some dough to the Indiegogo drive, you'll be rewarded with—what else?—sheets of custom gift wrap. PicPaperie created a little sample with one of our fave Instagram pics of the city from above—and the possibilities are endless! The Rockefeller Tree for Christmas, a romantic memory for your S.O., an awkward selfie for your best friend.… Next up? Figuring out what present to buy for the #bestgiftever.
