Good Day, fellow Peacocks!
I've got a cute little project and tutorial to share today.

To start, gather all of the stuff shown below.
I'm sure you have all these things in your stash, right?

What you Need:
(1) Scraps of designer paper in various widths
(2) Flowers to coordinate with your paper (I made these, but there are lots readily available out there)
(3) A doily
(4) Sandwich or kraft gift bag
(5) A length of coordinating ribbon about 16"
(6) Large Burlap Splendid Swirl from Pinque Peacock

Not Shown:
- Adhesive (double stick tape, glue gun, glue dots)
- Scissors
- Staples

Tuck your gift in the bag and fold the top carefully over a couple of times and secure with a staple.

Cut your scraps of paper in various length banners and layer to your liking. Again, secure with a couple staples. Set aside.

Put a piece of double stick tape on the BACK of gift bag. Fold the doily in 1/2 and lay over the top of the bag (see final project)

Put a couple of pieces of double stick tape on the back and front at the top of the banners. Lift up the front of the doily (It won't have any tape on it). Tuck the banner underneath and secure.

Tie the length of ribbon around the back. Knot should be either to the left or right. (Mine is on the right. Clip the ends to match the banners. You might want to secure the ribbon in place with a piece of double stick tape. I used a dab from my hot glue gun.

Adhere the Burlap Splendid Swirl in the center.

Arrange the flowers around the large centerpiece and secure in place. You will note that I didn't use all the flowers I pulled out. And That's okay!

There you go. A cheerful package to make anyone happy!
