Tis the season for making everything merry and bright! We teamed up with the always crafty and creative Tammie Markham of @dearwhimsy to create an adorably festive gift wrapping DIY to try this holiday season.
Kraft paper gift wrap
Paper flower template
Card stock paper (white,red, light green, dark green)
Hot glue gun
I started by wrapping my box with the kraft paper.
After I finished wrapping the box, I then tied this pretty gold ribbon around the box.
You want to cut as close as you can to the knot. Then print the provided template to make the paper flower. Cut out the different shapes so you can start tracing on the colored paper.
You will need: 4 of the (A) petals, 3 of the (B) petals, and 1 of the (C),(D), and (E) petals.
After you’re done cutting the traced petals, cut a straight line down the middle of the petal as shown on the template.
Now you will want to add a little dot of hot glue to connect the sides. That will give your flower some dimension and shape.
It’s time to start putting your flower together, you can do so by piecing all of the (A) petals to one another. Then glue the (B) petals together.
When you are finished the with (A) and (B) petals, glue the completed (B) petal to the center of the (A) petal. They should overlap like the finished picture displays.
I like to place the (E) piece on my hand and apply pressure to the center and the sides using the eraser of my pencil. It will give the petal a round look and that will give you more dimension.
It’s finished! As you can see, you can mix it up by using different colors. I can’t wait to see what you come up with. You can show me by tagging me on Instagram @dearwhimsy #dearwhimsydiy
