I like to keep it simple when it comes to gift wrap and gift bags.  I mainly have kraft colored and white options and dress them up with ribbon or other embellishments I have in my craft room.  I recently discovered another great option for decorating packages.  For today’s project, I created some pretty floral pieces using a die set from Sizzix/David Tutera called Lace Flower Framlits.

The set comes with die cuts and coordinating stamps to mix and match.  I took an afternoon and just cut out a bunch of the die cuts in different colors and paper types and came up with some really pretty decorations.

I love the smaller flower petal die because it has a pretty inner piece that cuts little pieces into the outer petal.

I used some glue dots to adhere a few of the petals to create a flower.

I did one with just different colors of cardstock and the other more intricate with vellum and heat embossing using the stamp.

I added the flowers to these cute little Heidi Swapp Minc Mini Treat Bags.

I ran some silver Minc foil through my Mini Minc

…to create a foiled sentiment on the front of the bag.  I tried it with aqua foil too and it looked really great with the flower.

I used the coordinating stamp with the larger petals and some coral cardstock to create this large bloom.  I did some heat embossing with white powder to really make the flower “pop”.

I dressed up a plain, white gift bag just by adding it to the front.

Here’s another option where I die cut into the petals and added some silver glitter paper underneath.

I love all the options you have creating these fun paper flowers.  They would look really pretty on top of gift packages too!  Thanks so much for joining me today!
