This treat bag/package topper is created from recycled materials and is a great alternative to the standard gift bow.

Approximate Time: about 30 minutes




  1. Use acrylic paint and foam brush to paint a 4-inch piece of cardboard tube inside and out. Allow to dry.
  2. Painted cardboard tube.

  3. Slightly flatten the cardboard tube and mark it off in half-inch increments.
  4. Cut it into 8, half-inch pieces. You will have 8 pieces that resemble flower petals.
  5. Cutting tube into 1/2 inch sections.
    Tube petals.


  6. Apply glue on 1/4 inch of the bottom end of one piece and glue it to another piece. Continue until all 8 pieces are glued together to resemble a flower.
  7. Cut 4 small hearts of equal size (about 1 1/2 inches) from construction paper.
  8. Paper hearts.

  9. Glue hearts to top of flower, with points of hearts toward center.
  10. Heart flower on top of tube petals.

  11. Add an embellishment to the top of the hearts. I used a circle cut from a gold doily, but you could glue on a button, circle of lace, loose pearls, or other embellishment.
  12. Decorative doily center for flower.


  13. Now you are ready to glue the topper to a treat bag or wrapped package.
  14. Flower attached to gift bag.
