Hmmm...this shows how to execute an ssis package using windows task scheduler

I was looking to go the other way.    Execute a scheduled task from within an ssis package

You have a few options, but I'll give you something that will allow you to get up and running quickly...

Open SQL Server Management Studio and connect to the Database Engine of the SQL Server that will run the job. This SQL Server should have SQL Server Agent installed and running.
Create a new SQL Server Agent Job.
When you create your package step, for Type choose SQL Server Integration Services Package. For the Package source, choose File system. Then for the Package you can use the browse button (...) to browse for the DTSX file on the file system.
Go to Schedules and create job schedules as you normally would for any other SQL Server Agent job. In your case, set the Frequency to Daily, and set the value of Occurs once at to whatever time the job should run.
A couple of things to keep in mind...

Make sure that the SQL Server Agent service account (this is the default, you can choose an alternative security context if needed) has the permission to access the dtsx package on the filesystem.
This will only work if the server on which you're scheduling the job is also the Integration Services server. There are plenty of ways to handle remote package execution if you require it.
