Day 3 of paper week! It’s been a fun challenge doing this every day. A lot of work though! Today we are making cute little gift toppers.

What you need: Paper of two different colors, scissors, glue

Step 1: Start by cutting a large circular shape out of paper. Gift it some wavy edges so it looks like a flower.

Step 2: Continue doing this, making each successive circle a little smaller than the last and using two different colors of paper.

Step 3 & 4: Using just a dab of glue in the center, start glueing the layers, largest to smallest. Continue until you’ve worked your smallest circle.

Step 5: Start cutting lines in towards the middle, leaving the center intact. I cut in a total of 8 lines.

Step 6: Start pulling, crinkling and bending the layers to give some depth and structure. Continue doing this until you achieve the desired effect.

Voila! A pretty easy way to liven up a gift for a loved one.

I’ve got a fun project for tomorrow. Until then!
