papercrafted gift toppers

These adorable package toppers made with simple papercrafting supplies will add a special touch to all of your gifts.
Step 1

Cut two strips of green cardstock 1½" x 11" [3.81 cm x 27.94 cm]. Using the scoring portion of the trim and score board, lay the strip horizontally on the board making sure it's square and use the bone folder to score ½" [1.27 cm] lines all the way across of each strip.

Step 2

Using the adhesive runner, adhere the two strips together, overlapping ½" [1.27 cm].

Step 3

Accordion fold the long strip along the scored lines.

Step 4

Adhere the two ends together so your paper is now a loop.

Step 5

Prior to gathering the pinwheel together, cut two circles from cardstock approximately 1" [2.54 cm] in diameter. Set aside.

Step 6

Stand up the loop, then carefully gather it towards the middle as you push it down flat. Gather the circle toward the middle and adjust so the accordions are spaced more evenly. Hold in place with one hand.

Step 7

Add hot glue to the back of one of the cardstock circles and carefully place it on the back middle of the pinwheel. Hold in place for a few seconds.

Step 8

Now, repeat Steps 1-7 using red cardstock, cutting two strips 1" x 11" [2.54 cm x 27.94 cm].

Step 9

Hot glue the red pinwheel on the top, middle of the green pinwheel.

Step 10

To make the twine tassel, take the red, white and green twine and wrap it around your hand about 20 times. Carefully slide it off your hands and thread a piece of twine through the loops and tie a knot. Now, gather the loops in one hand and tie a piece of twine about 1/2" [1.27 cm] down from the knot, wrapping around the tassel 2-3 times and tie a knot. Trim the excess twine. Finally, cut the loops on the bottom end and trim them even.

Step 11

Hot glue the tassel behind the pinwheel.

Step 12

Add a sticker to the middle of the pinwheel, then adhere the pinwheel to the top of a gift.
TIP: You can also use circle punches in varying sizes and stack them using foam dots for dimension to make more cute papercrafted gift toppers.
