Festive wreaths, the 'how to' is HERE.

These take very little paper to make. I have used the same setof 5 My Mind's Eye papers to make a calendar, a flat tree and one of these wreaths and I still have at least 1/4 of each sheet left. (The top light green one)
The top dark green one is also made from leftovers from another project.
The bottom one is BG Figgy Pudding. I have a plastic wallet where all my basic Grey bits go, they range from half an inch up to half a 6x6 none of te bits are very big. But all the flowers in this one came out of that bit wallet.
I borrowed an oval punch for the petals on the first one, but then once home I hand cut the petals for the other two, the 'buttons' are just a 1 inch punch with holes made using the cropodile.
All the holly leaves are cut on the cricut, using the 'stretch your imagination' cartridge. I used 5 A4 sheets of green card and 2 half sheets of 12 x12 BG.
Very tempted to keep all 3, but I think 2 will be given away.


  1. these look such fun ...I'm sure I would need loads more paper than you have lol

  2. Wow! They turned out really nicely.
