Fringed Flower Gift Topper
by All Things Paper Follow

This large paper flower makes me think of Gerbera daisies. It's constructed very much the same way as a much smaller, quilled fringed flower, if you happen to know how to quill. If not, trust me, it isn't hard to make this package topper. Use any type of paper or lightweight cardstock you like. I chose TerraSkin, which is bright white and paper-like in appearance, but is actually made of pressed mineral powder, believe it or not. Before cutting the fringe, I painted the strips of TerraSkin with a Gelatos crayon. Gelatos go on just like paint when used with a wet watercolor brush - very fun to use!

My full tutorial is on Makezine, so I won't repost it here: link is at the end of this post.

Recap

  • Make even cuts along 4 strips of paper that are folded in half lengthwise. Snip the first strip very finely, and increase the distance between the cuts for the other three strips.The strip shown below is of the largest cuts. Glue the 4 strips end-to-end, graduating the fringe size from smallest to largest.

  • Roll a strip of black, 1/8 inch quilling paper to make the flower center and roll your snipped length of orange fringed paper snugly around it and glue the end in place. Find the full tutorial on Makezine: http://makezine.com/craft/flashback-fringed-flower-gift-topper/
