DIY Rose Paper Gift Topper


I think that the presentation of the gift is half of the gifting process so I am always on the look out for good gift wrapping ideas.

Yesterday, I just found a  really good DIY gift topper that adds up a bit of elegance to a gift in plain brown paper. This is the rose paper gift topper picture I found and it looks really, really nice.

Anyway, it looks too complicated, right? Not really. I think anyone who at least did a little paper crafting in school is going to be able to follow the surprisingly easy step-by-step instructions below.

These instructions were meant for a rose hair clip, but I think you can use the no-stem version, don’t glue the hair clip and just glue it to the top of the gift wrap. The instruction was taken with permission from Lia Griffith.

I am thinking this will be a perfect way to present a gift to a female lover on Valentines day (or her birthday for that matter) or your best girl friend (your bff). I’d recommend using a piece of newspaper, magazine or a map to make the gift even more artistic. I also think you can use this top top not only boxed gifts but also gifts in cans or in gift bags.

A big hat tip to Lia and Emily for giving me permission to republish this cool idea!
