I love the Fall time. Pretty colors! This wreath was created for the November Creative Crew challenge at www.splitcoaststampers.com
This challenge was to use the Designer Series Paper: Sweater Weather . What better way to show off this beautiful paper but through a wreath! I went a little out of the box with this one, I cut my strips of paper to one inch instead of a half inch. This gave my wreath a little bit fuller look or plumper look.
To make the banner at the bottom of the wreath, I used the Banner Builder Simply Created Kit . This great kit has these stencils in them- alpha and patterns!!! I had to get the kit just for those stencils!!! But the whole kit is wonderful!!!! I can't wait to use those stencils more and more!
Here is my tip- when using the stencils, I used a piece of washi tape to hold the stencil in place while I inked it. Why washi tape? First of all, I have tons of it, it is sitting on my craft table, but the most important part, is that some washi tape doesn't have a super strong hold to it like other tapes might. So removing the stencil is really easy! (I will say, I think the Stampin' Up washi tape has a really good hold, so I probably wouldn't use it for this!!!) It is a good use for that washi tape that you had to have, you used it for a project and now are stuck with this crazy washi tape that you don't know what you will ever do with it again....USE it!!!!! :)
To make the wreath, I started in a section and just started pinning. I used a circular 10" foam wreath.
I added some bling and texture to my wreath!
These wreaths are so easy and so much fun! Have you tried to make a paper wreath yet??
