Gift wrap ideas: crepe paper poinsettias
Would you like to add a little extra flair to your wrapped present, but don’t have a lot of time or extra budget? If so, we have a solution for you! Adding a statement piece that’s truly unique to your gift doesn’t have to be difficult or expensive. Here at American Greetings, we came up with an easy poinsettia flower embellishment that anyone can create… no special tools or extra skill sets required! Using just a few simple items, you can decorate all of your gifts in no time!
Here’s what you’ll need:
Next, you take your crepe paper and lay it out about the length of your hand. Layer it back and forth 8 times. Don’t worry about making them perfectly even, because next you’re going to trim each end anyways.
Cut off the excess on each side so that your crepe paper is about 5″ long.
Next, add the poinsettia to your gift by using double sided tape. Taping the flower onto the package will hold it in place while you trim your petals into the perfect shape.
Lastly, trim your petals into a “V” shape.
There you have it — a pretty package that will have people thinking, “That’s so crafty!”
