Welcome back! I have some more creative gift wrapping for you today. Next up at the wrapping station:
Crease and fold the butterflies in half to give them some dimension. It is okay to leave a few butterflies flat.
Gift wrap your present as you normally would. And add your ribbon and bow on diagonal corners.
Lay your butterflies on top of the glue. Keep adding butterflies until your cluster is done.
1 – 12″ x 12″ scrapbook paper
Shiny embellishment dots or stickers
Optional: Green construction paper or scrapbook paper for fringe grass at the bottom
Wrap your package as you would normally.
…and cut along the fold(s) using the template below.
Glue the tree trunk down using Elmer’s glue. Run a bead along the spine of the tree and glue the first tree down on top of the trunk. Run a second bead of glue along the spine of the first tree and lay the second tree on top but slightly lower than the first.
Add some embellishments or stickers to decorate your tree.
Optional: Adding Fringe Grass
Cut out a strip of green construction paper for your grass line. Tape two pieces together if you need to make it longer.
Cut fringes into the top edge of the green strip.
Using a pencil, roll the fringes over the pencil. I found this worked best on my thigh (probably because of that 10 lbs. of blogger bloat!)
Glue your strip of fringed grass onto the package using Elmer’s glue.
Use your finger to push some fringes up and others down until you like the look.
