Christmas Wreath

blogged by me domestic goddess On 12/02/2008 01:39:00 PM
"Oh the weather outside is frightful, But the fire is so delightful,And since we've no place to go,Let It Snow! Let It Snow! Let It Snow!!" Boy it is so cold at the moment, and I am still under the weather, so there is only one thing to do, CRAFT!!

Christmas is only a few weeks away. We will be decorating the house this weekend, and in the meantime I am making some Christmas dec's to adorn the house and studio.
Today I am going to share with you, this Christmas Wreath I made from paper and my trusty scalloped punches!.

So lets gather our supplies first:

Christmas Papers - Fancy Pants new Christmas line, very nice!
2 sheets of card stock to co ordinate
2 sheets of light weight chipboard
Title - optional
Scallop punch in 2 sizes
small circle punch

To Assemble:
  • Decide how large you want your finished wreath to be, and cut a circle out of chipboard, this is your base. Remember to cut a middle out as well!

  • Punch from a large scallop 12 - 14 circles from a selection of card stock
  • Punch from a smaller scallop 12 - 14 circles from card stock
  • Punch from a smaller scallop 12 - 14 circles from your pattern paper
  • Punch from small circle 6 - 8 circles from your pattern paper

  • Now mount your punched circles onto chipboard and cut out
  • I layered a selection of my circles using 3d foam pads. Do not add buttons at this stage
  • Now to assemble your wreath!
  • Start arranging and layering your punched scallops onto your chipboard base. Once you have covered your chipboard base, add buttons and stickles
  • Finally add some ribbon to hang your wreath up and add a title. I used this cute pair of birds from Chatterbox Artilicious range.

Have fun and please do post a link to your paper wreaths, I would love to see them
