I need some creative ideas for wrapping a poster that has been mounted (or framed - I haven't decided what I want to do with it yet) Maximum size, it'll be 14X18. I am very big on recycled and reusable ideas.

This is for a birthday present but her birthday is ridiculously close to Christmas that I usually incorporate the two. I was thinking of knitting her a Harry potter scarf which would in the end be the wrapping paper, but I am time crunched so that's just not going to work. This year the two will probably be seperate.

Any ideas would be very appreciated.

Hey, welcome to the fledgling community.

I've been trying to think of a good idea for this, hence the radio silence. It's a tricky one, but what I'd probably end up doing is wrapping in newspaper, then splattering some really bright paint across it (I'd use neon pink, but I'm a bit cuckoo). Think of the Pollack-esque fun you can have!

E-how also has some recs: http://www.ehow.com/how_8023_wrap-oversized-gift.html

I don't really like their suggestions, but the user at the bottom has a cool tip - use paper tablecloths!

ooh, another thought, stencilling letters in a really cool font and strong colour could also look great against the newsprint.
