Gift Wrapping with Fabric Flowers

As we celebrate this season with gift-giving, there’s something so special about a beautifully-wrapped parcel. Over the past few days, we have been learning how to make fabric flowers with a Kanzashi Flower Maker using Christmas fabrics. Yesterday, we discovered three ways to use fabric flowers as Christmas decorations. Now let’s see how gift wrapping with fabric flowers would look!

Gift Bag

Attach a Pointed Petal flower and decorative button to a handmade or purchased gift bag for an elegant accent.

Layer a large-size and extra-small-size Pointed Petal flower to create a gorgeous gift bow.

Not only does Clover have Kanzashi Flower Makers, they also have Bow Makers.

Take your favorite ribbon and wrap it around the bow maker as instructed to create a 7-pointed star. Then add a fabric flower to complete the ensemble.

    I really like the idea of adding flowers to accentuate gift wrapping. They can easily be re-used or added to other things. So pretty and unique!
