Embellish your gift with a flower

>> Monday, February 28, 2011

We attended a little girl's birthday party this Saturday. I wanted to dress up the gift a little. A small paper flower undoubtedly makes a lovely gift topper! Here is what what the finished product looks like.


Here is how you make the flower. All you need is some scrapbook paper and a button or a gem sticker to embellish the middle of the flower.

I have tried to explain the process of making the flower as best as I could. I think the pictures would help more.
  1. Cut two 2" strips of the scrap paper and one strip of width 1.5" . You will also need 3 card stock circles. The size of the circles will depend on how large you want your flower to be. The circles have to be of 3 different sizes, each one a little smaller than the one earlier.
  2. Fold the paper strip four times and make cuts along the edge of the strip. Open the cut strip.
  3. Now use a pencil to curl the cut edges.
  4. Glue the paper strip to the biggest circle. You have to create a pleat after every 3 to 4 cuts. This gives the flower some dimension. Repeat the same process for the 2 smaller circles. I used a hot glue gun for this process.
  5. Now stick all the 3 circles one above the other.
  6. I embellished the flower using a button I bought at Jo-Ann's.Add some leaves and you are done!
 Here are some picture I took along the way.


It took me half an hour to make this flower. Here is how it looks on the gift.




Hope you like it!

VERY CUTE!! I thought it was just a little extra you bought, I didn't know you made it. It makes it even better since you made it! Great job!
