I always love to wrap and decorate birthday presents, but there are times when I don’t have the time to actually wrap a gift. I need to throw the present in a gift bag and go. That is the inspiration behind today’s blog post. For this topic, I choose to decorate gift bags with quilled birthday cakes! I used On Point Glue throughout this project because it has the fine tip applicator and allows enough open time to move the quilled paper exactly where I want it.

Skill: Intermediate
Time: 30 min. + dry time

Directions

Step 1

Cut pieces of paper into thin strips from blue, yellow and orange paper using a paper trimmer.

Step 2

Create the top of the cake by taking a piece of blue quilling paper and creating a large oval. Glue ends together using On Point Glue. Begin to create the bottom of the cake by taking another piece of blue quilling paper and adhere one end to the oval.

Step 3

Finish the bottom of the cake by wrapping blue quilling paper to the other side of the oval and adhere. Round the bottom of the paper to create the bottom of the cake. Adhere the outline of the cake to the gift bag. Attach rolled quilling to the inside of the bottom portion of the cake outline. Repeat until bottom portion is filled.

Step 4

Create a large rolled paper and attach that to the inside of the top portion of the cake outline. Using orange paper, roll an oval. Push the top and bottom to create a rectangle. Attach to itself. Repeat to make enough candles as desired. Adhere candle bases above the cake. Roll yellow quilling paper in a circle. Pinch one side of the circle to create the candle flames. Adhere to itself. Repeat until all candles have flames. Adhere above candles.

Step 5

Once dry, stamp Happy Birthday with multicolor Feista VersaColor inkpad and let dry. Tissue paper and gift are ready to go inside this newly decorated bag!

Tip: Clean off stamp using StazOn stamp cleaner. Spray directly onto the stamp. Wipe clean.
