How to do it
Place a piece of patchwork fabric on a surface with the wrong side face up. Place a gift box in the middle and gather the top corner of the fabric in the middle of the box as shown in this photo.
Now gather the bottom corner of the fabric in the middle of the box.
Gather the remaining two corners; one at a time (whilst holding the other two corners). Tie a piece of string around all four corners.
Fold the tip of the corners towards the middle and push them inside where they meet to make a flower.
