Pretty Gift Decor

Here's something I saw on Pinterest of course!!  See the original post here.  Such a simple but really pretty and unique way to liven up a pressie wrapped in plain paper.

All you need is paper, scissors, ribbon, hole punch and tape. 

Luckily, I have my brand new nesting punch (£15 from the Range) which cuts perfect 3 inch circles - what an awesome discovery, I will definitely be adding more of these to my collection in different shapes and sizes.  If you don't have one of these then I'm afraid you'll have to hand cut your circles.   

I've used a scarf catalogue from work with some awesome prints and colours in it.  I've cut the circles so that there's a pattern on both sides.   

Fold the circles in half with the prettiest colours on the inside as those are the colours you'll see later.

Punch two holes in each semi circle.  I just used a normal hole punch.  

Thread a piece of ribbon through each.  Fasten the ribbon at the bottom of the parcel with a staple or double sided tape.  

Then just pull the 'petals' apart - so pretty!  You can stick the two outer petals to the paper with double sided tape just to hold it better.
