Nothing says fancy like flamingos, palms and pom poms! Make the next gift you wrap extra special with this fun Flamingo DIY printable paper! All you need is a printer, white printer paper, ribbon, scissors, a toilet roll and some tulle or tissue. Read below for printing tips and a quick mini pom pom tutorial.
I love using printable paper to wrap small items like journals, notebooks, candles, ornaments and more! Usually about two 8.5" by 11" sheets of paper is enough to cover a small 8" by 6" book.
- Print using a high quality print setting
- Set to full bleed, no boarders
-Use white printer paper or coated paper ( I like to use 24lb - 28 lb weight paper it seems to absorb the ink nicely)
Time for Pom Poms!
Here's a quick lil tutorial for anyone who's never made pom poms.
Supplies: Scissors, ribbon, toilet roll or small piece of cardboard, and your choice of tulle, tissue or yarn.
Steps 1 & 2:
Cut your toilet roll or card board so that it is about 2.25" wide. You can of course make this wider if you'd like to end up with a larger pom pom. Wrap the tulle around the cardboard about 10 times, Cut off the remainder. Carefully pull the tulle off the cardboard pitching in the middle.
Step 3 & 4:
Continue to hold the tulle in place by pitching it, next use ribbon to tie a tight knot in the center.
Step 5 &6:
Cut through the tulle layers on both sides. Pull apart all the layers to create a full pom pom. Cut off any stray pieces to round off the shape. Attach to your gift using the ribbon and Volia! It's ready to gift!
