What you’ll need: 2 patterned papers; paper or fabric flower pieces from scrapbook isle of craft store; decorative brads; scissors, and hole punch.
Make a fold down the side of the paper and cut out half of a heart shape, so that when you open it, it looks like a full heart. You’ll need 5 of these for 1 flower.
Layer the hearts on top of one another and punch a small hole at the bottom.
Layer a flower piece on top of the heart shapes and push a brad through everything and secure it. Now fan out the hearts to form a flower and attach it to your package using double sided tape.
Valentine’s Gift Wrap & Paper Flower DIY
February 10, 2011 by 8 Comments
After working with Paula from Frog Prince Paperie, on the Queen of Heart Valentine’s shoot, I had several printed papers left over from the collection. I decided I’d create something fun with them using 2 different patterns and a few other crafty embelishments.
The printable papers make a great gift wrap for small (sparkly?) gifts so I chose to use one pattern for wrapping and another pattern for a heart-shaped flower rosette.
I also added one of the straw flags from the collection, as a little “stem” to the flower for extra detail. What other ways could you use these heart flowers?
