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.
…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!
