Brown paper is an inexpensive, eco-friendly material that can be used to wrap almost any type of flower. The key to wrapping flowers in brown paper is to choose a heavy-duty paper that will not tear easily. You will also need to use a sharp knife or scissors to cut the paper into the desired shape and size.
To wrap a flower in brown paper, start by cutting a piece of paper that is slightly larger than the flower. Next, make a cut in the center of the paper, fold it over the flower, and tuck the end underneath. Finally, secure the paper in place with tape or a rubber band.
What You’ll Need
-Pens or pencils
-Ruler or measuring tape
Start by cutting a piece of brown paper to the desired size. Place the flowers on the paper, and arrange them how you want them to look. Using a pencil or pen, trace around the outside of the flowers. Once you have traced all of the flowers, remove them from the paper.
Using a ruler or measuring tape, draw a line around the outside of the tracing, about 1/2 inch away from it. Cut along this line to create a border around the tracing.
Fold the brown paper in half, so that the tracing is on one side and the other side is blank. Place the flowers back onto the tracing, and then fold over the other side of brown paper so that it covers them.
Use a stapler to staple along the open edge of brown paper, securing it shut. Finally, use tape to secure any loose ends or flaps.
Step One: Preparing the Flowers
Cut the stems of your flowers so they are about 6 inches long. If you are using daisies, snap off the green base of the flower.
Step Two: Wrapping the Flowers
Start by wrapping a piece of brown paper around the bottom of the stems, securing it with tape. Then, continue wrapping the paper around the stems, making sure to keep the flowers snug against each other. Once you reach the top of the stems, secure the paper with another piece of tape.
Step Three: Finishing touches
Cut a length of twine and tie it around the paper-wrapped stems. You can also add a label to the front of your arrangement with the recipient’s name or a special message.
Step Two: Wrapping the Flowers
The second step in wrapping your flowers in brown paper is to actually wrap them! Start by taking a piece of brown paper and folding it in half lengthwise. Then, take your stems and place them in the center of the paper, making sure that they are evenly distributed. Once your flowers are in place, begin wrapping the paper around them, using either a twisting or folding motion to secure the stems in place. When you reach the end of the paper, simply tuck the end under the other side and voila! You’ve successfully wrapped your flowers in brown paper!
Step Three: Adding the Finishing Touches
Before you add the finishing touches to your wrapped flowers, make sure the stems are securely fastened in the paper. If they’re not, the flowers will fall out when you try to move them.
Once the stems are secure, you can add some extra decoration to the paper. This can be anything from a ribbon to a piece of twine. Be creative and have fun with it!
When you’re finished, your flowers should look something like this. They make great gifts or decorations for your own home.
To finish, gently fold the top of the brown paper down, tucking it underneath the stems of the flowers. You can secure the paper in place with some clear tape, or even a pretty ribbon. Now your flowers are ready to be enjoyed!
