Paper flowers will always be a favorite of mine. Today, we have dahlias! To recreate this look, you’ll need the following:
Ivory speckled wrapping paper (I used a sheet of scrapbooking paper from Michaels)
Card stock in three shades of fall colors
Copper/brown puff glue
Wide gold net ribbon
Cut out eight dahlia silhouettes from the card stock, each one just smaller than the last. Your larger three should be from your darker colored card stock, the next three from your middle colored one, and the last two from your lightest one. Glue them on top of each other from largest to smallest, rotating each layer just a bit to create fullness in the dahlia. Then take your puff glue and apply several dots in the middle and let dry.
While the flower is drying, wrap your boxed gift in the wrapping paper. Then cut a strip of the gold net ribbon just long enough for the ends to slightly overlap on the back of the wrapped gift. Glue the ends down with a few dabs of glue. Once the flower is dry, place a small square of mounting tape on the back of it and secure it on the front of the wrapped gift in the middle. Done!
