Flower Gift Toppers

I recently received a prize package won from Jamie at Raising Up Rubies.  She has so many wonderful ideas -- and I enjoy browsing her etsy shop - just for inspiration!  In my package was a lovely crocheted flower something like the ones she has for sale here.  I "fell in love" with my darling flower and soon set out to make some of my own. Here's the results:
These flowers are pretty simply and fast to whip up --the free pattern can be found here.
Other supplies include:
  • Yarn
  • Buttons
  • Blossom I Nestabilites 
    • the large shape the flower is tied to
  • Blossom II Nestabilities
    • the smaller stamped shape
  • Old cracker/cereal boxes 
    • I glued my pretty paper to the cardboard before cutting it out -- it makes a nice firm gift topper that way
  • Scraps of pretty paper
  • Studio G sentiment stamps
  • Twine
    • for tying the sentiment on
Here's a view of the back -- so you can see how I tied the flower onto the cardboard:
 You can add a strip of double sided tape to stick it to your package.

Very nice! These are so much prettier than store-bought bows, and they're a lot cheaper, too.
