A friend recently asked me how to incorporate Paper Flowers onto a gift for a shower. I soon got to work to figure out how to create an expressive 'Spring' display. I love the word 'shower' because I immediately thought of an umbrella. I created three elongated triangle shapes along with a paper wrapped wire that formed the handle and core of the umbrella. I used hot glue to do the edges and secured the inside with extra corrugated material. I then added Paper Flowers to the top. In the bottom photo I added an extra wrapped 'bundle' of flowers so the 3D Umbrella had something to rest upon. I tied one with Raffia and the other with white ribbon & knot on the bottom. A fun & fresh look for your packages!!
