wreath 2

I’ve been seeing ‘curled paper’ wreaths a lot in the last couple of months and decided I’d like to give it a try.  I started out with a foam wreath found at a local big box store (Jo’s) and about six sheets of Stampin’ Up! Sweater Weather Designer Series Paper #132184 (which I am in love with!) I cut each sheet into 1/2″ strips, then took my bone folder and pulled the strips across just like you’d do with curling ribbon – so easy!  It took a little while to curl all the strips, but I worked on them while watching television with the hubs.  First, I attached some of the 1-1/4″ Burlap Ribbon (#132140) to the wreath with sticky strip, and wound a little twine around it.  Each curled piece is then held in place with a straight pin.  Again, it took a little time to pin them all onto the wreath base, but I really loved the way it was shaping up.  It still needed a little something, so I embossed a piece of Chocolate Chip cardstock with the Houndstooth folder (#123134)  To that, I added the ‘Thankful’ which I cut from a Gold Foil Sheet (#132622) using one of the Expressions Thinlits Dies (#132171) and some leaves that I cut from Crushed Curry, Tangerine Tango, and Chocolate Chip cardstock and the Autumn Accents Bigz Die (#127812)  The button is retired from a few years ago… wreath 1

So, my front door is ready for Thanksgiving – now on to the rest of the house!  I’m still in the process of moving all my ‘toys’ into my new Studio, but I’ll have more on that in a few days when I’ve finished!

Thanks for visiting today, and as always, these products and a whole lot more are available in my online store
