Spring is my favorite season and I always look forward to seeing the first spring blossoms. Inspired by the pink blossoms lining the streets in our neighborhood I created some crepe paper flowers to decorate a few packages. They are super easy to make.


1. crepe paper [crepe paper holds the shape much better than tissue paper]

2. scissors

3. glue stick

1. Gather the supplies.

2. Cut a strip of crepe paper. [My strip was 2" wide by 20" long.]

3. Fold the crepe paper strip accordion style.

4. Cut out a petal shape on the folded edge.

5. Repeat Steps 2-4, cutting various size petals. [I cut 18 petals.]

6. Find a surface to place your crepe paper flower. [I used two pieces of card stock, stitched up three sides, placed the gift inside and stitched up the last side.]

7. Place a dab of glue on one end of a petal. Secure into place my pressing down into the paper for a few seconds. Repeat with remaining petals.

beautiful, I´m definitely bookmarking this since I always struggle on how to wrap presents, frankly I kind of suck at wrapping gifts. Question: do you mind if I pin this on my diy board?. (linking to your blog and mentioning you of course..)
