Framing single sheets of high quality gift wrap or handmade fine paper is an easy and inexpensive way to fill a wall with art. I’ve used these types of papers in both my kids’ bedrooms to add accent colors and fun images. Paper Source is my go-to place for a great selection of both fine papers and fun gift wrap sheets. I actually worked there while we lived in Seattle, and remain a huge fan of their products to this day. They have such a variety, you could easily find one to work in every room of your house, or buy a few, trim them to various sizes and create a gallery wall.  Here is a small sampling of the vast choices,  with prices between $3.95 and $6.50 a sheet.

If your budget is super tight, just forgo the frame and use Scotch Removable Mounting Squares to adhere it to your wall without damaging the paper or your walls. I’ve had great success with these, they have superior wall adhesion.

The fine papers would also work nicely to cover the back of a bookcase, adding a pop of color without the permanence of paint. Check out Paper Source’s website to find just the right accent for your decor.
