Valentine Paper Flower with Heart Shaped Petals

I found a roll of cute flower gift wrap with a rose-red polka dot pattern the other day. Many flower wraps available in the U.S. are made in synthetic materials, either mesh or thin tissue or fabric like paper. Despite the delicate appearance, they are durable, flexible and good for various craft projects.

This lovely polka dot paper seemed perfect for Valentine’s Day. So as I was designing a gift wrapping idea for a new video, I thought let’s use this paper to create a paper flower with heart petals!

The paper flower consists of 16 heart-shaped petals (8 large petals and 8 small petals) with a cute tiny heart in the center. This gift wrapping package has a lot of heart!

You bought a perfect Valentine’s gift, why not add this heartfelt gift wrapping project? This might be a perfect way to show your appreciation to the people you love.
