How to Wrap a Flower Bouquet Craft Idea

Before you kick-off Valentine’s Day festivities, don’t forget to show some love for your besties with a Galentine’s Day gift! What better time to show the besties in your life how much you care then on February 11th! You could hand out balloon bouquets OR you could let me show you how to wrap a flower bouquet your BFFs will love!

I thought it would be fun to show you how to wrap flowers in paper to give them a more personalized touch. However, this isn’t just any old paper–it’s freezer paper! Not only can you print on freezer paper, but it can also be used a waterproof option given its waxy finish.

Now, for the flowers, you could get them from a florist, or you could get some that are equally as pretty, (but at a fraction of the cost!) from the grocery store like I did. The spray roses were the perfect size for my paper bouquet. If you’re ready to get crafting, check out how to wrap a flower bouquet with the tutorial below. We even show you how to add a SUPER cute tag using an SVG file from the YayDay Be Mine SVG bundle!

Materials for Wrapping a Flower Bouquet 

How to Wrap a Flower Bouquet 

Step 1: Trim down a sheet of freezer paper to 12” x 12” with a paper trimmer, although a ruler and scissors will also do the trick.
Step 2: Place the freezer paper in the rear tray of your printer with the matte side facing up and print the striped paper design. 
Step 3: Wet a paper towel and wrap it around the bottom of your bouquet. (Tip: Wrap your flowers with a rubber band or piece of twine to help keep their shape).
Step 4: As soon as you get the flowers wrapped in the paper towel, use plastic wrap over it to hold the moisture inside.  With the printed side of the paper facing down, lay your flowers on top and fold the right side up about an inch. 
Step 5: Fold the left side over until it’s about an inch and a half past your flowers. 
Step 6: Grab the corner and fold it down so it’s even with the right side. 
Step 7: Take the bottom section and fold it up about 2”. 
Step 8: Move the the right side over to the left and tuck the excess towards the back.
Step 9: Secure the bouquet be adding a piece of double-sided tape to the end. Another option is to use a tape runner with permanent adhesive.

How to Create a Tag Using the Valentine’s SVG

Step 10: Open Cricut Design space and add a tag shape to the canvas.  Resize it to 3.78” x 2.24”.  After that, upload the Valentine SVG to Cricut Design Space.  Attach the SVG and place it over the tag so it fits. 
Step 11: For this step, you’ll grab your vinyl and cut out the valentine SVG and cut the tag on ‘cardstock’. 
Step 12: Since you’re using vinyl, you’ll need to weed the design.  Place a piece of transfer tape on top of the design, go over it with a squeegee and remove the vinyl. 
Step 12: Once the vinyl is off, center the design on the tag, go over it with a squeegee, and remove the transfer tape.
Step 14: You’ll need to cut an 8” piece of twine.  Before adding the twine to the bouquet, run the ends through the hole in the tag first.  Slide the twine around the bouquet and tie a knot in front and then finish with a bow. 

Once your finished making these flower bouquets for your gal pals, don’t forget to wrap one up for yourself–you deserve a bouquet of spray roses too! This technique isn’t just for Galenitne’s/Valentine’s Day. It can be used for Mother’s Day, to say congrats, or to wish a friend happy birthday. Just change up your paper theme and you’ll be good to go!
