I was wrapping my friends birthday gift and I wanted to do something different on the front of the package – something other than a bow or ribbon. I pulled out some white cardstock and the Cheerful Daisies Dies along with the Stylish Shapes Dies.
The wrapping paper was my own – not a Stampin’ Up! product – with a white background and silver and gold hearts. I coordinated my materials to match the wrapping paper.
I used the largest square die from the Stylish Shapes Dies set to cut out the base for my topper from white cardstock. Using dies from the Cheerful Daisies Dies set, I cut out the largest image of the three daisies and leaves as well as the three detailed daisies from white cardstock. I used a pair of paper snips to cut apart the daisies and leaves from the largest die cut. Then adhered the detailed daisies to the solid image daisies.
Flower centers were cut from Distressed Gold 12″ x 12″ Specialty Paper and adhered to the daisy centers. Two leaf sprigs were cut from Silver Foil 12″ x 12″ Specialty Pack paper.
The daisies were adhered to the die cut square using Stampin’ Dimensionals. I tucked the silver leaf sprigs under the left and right side of the largest daisy. A bow was tied from Gold Trim and added above the large daisy. I left the bow ends long so that they would hang down on either side of the flowers. Multiple silver Festive Pearls were added around the flowers. The topper was adhered to the wrapped gift using Stampin’ Dimensionals since I thought it might be easier to remove by the recipient.
This is a great alternative to the traditional bow and ribbon to top off a gift and the colors can be coordinate to match your wrapping paper! Fun!
