Have you noticed that gift packaging is getting better and better all of the time? I f you treasure someone enough to give them a gift then it makes sense to put it in something special so that the person that you give it to knows right from the start that you made it for them with love.
So, today, I made a gift box and decorated it to show how much I like the person and the gift inside it.
How to decorate it here:

You won't need much to make this, just:
1.5 metres of 23mm ribbon. ( The wider the ribbon, the fuller the flower. If you use thinner ribbon you will need to wrap it more to get the fullness. All will become clear).
1 large button
a scrap of contrasting ribbon
1 piece of still cardboard 5cm x 15cm. ( Cut it off an old cardboard box).
To make the flower:
Start with cut piece of ribbon at the top of the card as seen.

Here is the finished article and I guarantee that it will look this good next week and next month.
So, to get yourself started you will need:
1 really large rose
2 curly roses
small rose buds
medium rose buds
If you look above you will see what I used. Now, apart from the larger roses, you can vary the others a little. However, you will need lots of sizes. You will not get the same effect if you use all of the same size flowers so be warned.
I layered the smaller roses as shown below.
Start with the barrel at the top and gradually work down.Twist the stems together as you go.
To make the bow, fold the ribbon in a figure of eight shape and then go over the figure for a second time. Wrap the wire of one of the pearls around the centre of the ribbon and use the remaining part to wrap around the corsage and secure it in place.
Now you have youe corsage that you can wear, but have you thought about making several corsages and using them as table decorations? They make your table look superb.

For the uninitiated the daisy that I used is just one small stamp which you can get here for just £2.50. A bargain.
To achieve this effect you will need to colour up and stamp the card several times using two shades of blue from the Kuretake range of pens which can be found here. Don't forget that is you vary the colours you will get a different effect.
The flowers that I used at the top of the page are from the range of £1.50 blooms and they were a little to large so I cut them down. Perfect. They can be bought here.
The sentiment is from I Brake for Stamps and can be bought here.
Be warned as I've only got one sheet of these wonderful sentiment left so get in quick if you want one.

Today. I've made a card with flowers, but I've stamped them rather than using the mulberry paper ones. I'm using the daisy stamps from the I Brake for Stamps Flower Power sheet today. I felt the need to move on from the Glamour Girls for a lillte while just in case you thought that I was becoming obsessed.
One of the wonderful things about this card is that it's made with very little stash:
2 small stamps available here
1 small saying
a scrap of ribbon available here
some punched circles
The leaves are the holly leaves cut down so if you have any left over fron Christmas then get snipping to make them into something else. Just hoe that your friends are not botanically minded.
As the ribbon is tied on, I'm entering this card in the Craft Your Passion challenge for something tied on.

I've used distressed papers and a pointillism image which gives a really good vintage/faded image. The browns and greys add to the distressed feel too.
