Dial Trimmer Gift Packaging

Hello, We R friends! Tessa Buys here. I am the worst at remembering to buy wrap or bags for gifts. Thank goodness I have a crafty stash and fantastic tools like the Dial Trimmer to help me whip up last-minute gift packaging!

For this “wild” little gift bag, I cut a panel of Amy Tangerine patterned paper and adhered it to the front of my bag. I added a tag, then set to work creating a super easy cluster of paper roses to embellish the bag.

Using the Dial Trimmer and three different decorative blades, I cut a 1 inch wide x 12 inches long strip of Bazzill cardstock in yellow, pink and blue.

To make the flowers, I first dampened the cardstock strips. I like to stand at the sink and wet my fingers, then run my fingers across the paper to avoid saturating it too much. Blot with a towel and then begin rolling, gently folding the decorative edge out to look like petals. Glue as you go (I used a hot glue gun) and secure the end of the strip with more glue. Repeat with the other two strips.

When the flowers were completely dry, I glued them together and then added them to my bag with a couple of Amy Tangerine leaves (sticker and die-cut).

In far less time than it would take to run to the store, I made unique gift packaging and had a little crafty fun, too. Thanks to the Dial Trimmer, pretty flower accents are easy and quick. What would you add these flowers to? Happy creating!
