Tissue Paper Flower Gift Topper


Did everyone have a wonderful Easter? My loft was bursting with family Sunday morning. My sister and I made a tasty breakfast while our four teens hunted for 125 filled Easter eggs. I think we may have had as much fun filling and hiding as they did finding the eggs. To continue with the sweet pastel, fluffy bunny tail and spring flower theme, (I am just not quite ready to be done with Easter) today I am going to give you a quick and easy tutorial on how to make these tissue mini poms or flower gift toppers. You may be seeing these poms show up again for party decoration in a future post. . . they are just too cute! I am seeing a perfect decoration for baby showers, bridal showers, princess parties and even Mother’s Day. So let’s pull out all that leftover tissue and make some of these pretty mini poms! ~ Lia

Graduation Gift Idea

Here is a gift I made for a graduation. I used their school colors. I didn’t over do it as I knew that the graduate, being a boy, really wouldn’t care about how it looked on the outside…it’s what is inside that counts! LOL! I used my CRICUT to cut the font and the grad cap.  ***This is not a printable file. I have had quite a few requests for a printable file*** I used Alphalicious for the font and the grad cap came off of Locker Talk. The tag is a Creative Memories punch. The tassel came from the Dollar Tree. I stuffed it with money and candy.To make this you just cut a sideways U shaped cut in the bottle. Fill it with what ever you choose and then cover it with the paper. All of the stuff you put in will keep the U cut from curling in.

Initial Impression

You all know that I love letters. Mostly because I think typeface is beautiful, but the fact that they’re also quick and easy doesn’t hurt either.

(Hobby Lobby magnet, tied on to a plain white box.)

You can make initials out of whatever you’ve got laying around.

Fabric.

Pennies.

You could even get all hoity toity and use bedazzled ornaments like Martha does.

When I saw this idea I was inspired to go even bigger…..without getting too big…..that “R” is kinda creeping me out.

I printed up my letter on the computer, then cut it out using the fanciest cardboard I could find.

You could skip the cardboard, but I wanted it sturdy enough that it wouldn’t rip. I grabbed a book from my stash, otherwise known as “Things Our Dog Chewed Up That I Can Still Use”, glued it to the cardboard, then cut it out.*

* If your paper isn’t as transparent as mine, you could glue onto the printed side of the box, which would give you a plain white back. I just did both sides.

Add some ink to the edges if you want, punch a hole on top, and tie it on.
