I am thankful for all things beautiful from Stampin’ Up!!! This is a class I taught at the Scrapbooking Circle of Tuxedo. I had seen something similar done for Halloween and decided to create my own version of it. In attempt to keep cost down, I found a great solution for the base. I used cake disks from Wilton. I bought a pack of 10 at AC Moore for a few bucks (coupon!). I used a plate to trace a circle in the center and voila! Wreath form!
Paper strips are 6″ X 1″. All the materials are from the Petals & Paisleys Suite in the 2016-2017 Holiday Catalog of amazingness. I embossed some of the die cuts with the new copper embossing powder. As far as workshops go, this was a pretty smooth one. The only stamping to do was the “Thankful•Grateful•Blessed.” I pre-cut & pre-stamped/embossed all the paisley shapes (a LOT of work!). Staggering the strip so that the reverse side showed definitely added some depth. I kept the darker tones for the inside and the lighter tones on the reverse created another “row” or “layer” if you will. I do recomend using glue dots or fast fuse. Initially I used a typical tombow adhesive runner and the strips kept popping off.
