Paper Play: Gift Box Topper

Beautiful paper just has to be shared and beautiful packages made with beautiful paper are cherished gifts. It truly makes me happy to make the outside of a gift so pretty that the recipient dares to open the package.

Today I am going to show you one way I play with paper to make a present topper that is perfect for a spring gift. A flower topper that is made completely out of paper. The Hello Sunshine collection is such a beautiful hello to spring and the 12×12 paper pad is the only item I used from that collection to create a gift not wanting to be opened.

1. Cut several petal shapes from pattern paper. The shape is sort of like a heart, only the top has three scallops trimmed out.

2. Roll petals around stylus to give shape. The wide part rolls back, the small end rolls up as shown.

3. Hot glue petals to form flower. The first layer is about four petals. The second layer overlaps the first. This flower has about four layers total.

4. Cut about a 2 inch strip of pattern paper, and fringe edge to be the middle of the flower. Roll this around in a tight circle, and trim as desired for the middle of the flower.

5. Hot glue the middle in place in the center of the flower. Flatten and fluff the fringed pieces as desired.

Now, layer the flower over a doily, tuck in a swatch of tulle. Notch some pattern paper and tuck in as well. Hot glue all the layers together to be sure they stay put.

Before attaching to the top of the gift box, be sure to tuck in a little something something in your box to let the recipient know you are thinking of them and wishing them all good things.
