ScrapMart: Floral Red White Blue Wreath

Since this week is the 4th of July, I thought I'd create something different other than a card or scrapbook page. In my "to be altered" pile, I came across a wreath ring and came up with this...

Floral Red, White & Blue Wreath by Margie Higuchi
Supplies - Patterned Papers: Authentique Paper (Glory Collection); Rhinestones: Want2Scrap; Trinket Pins: Maya Road; Ribbon: American Craft (Grosgrain with Dots Ribbon); Paint: Ranger (C.Hellmuth Studio); Dies: Spellbinders™ Paper Arts (S4-351 Spiral Blossom One, S4-352 Spiral Blossom Two, S4-357 Spiral Blossom Three and S5-086 Bitty Blossoms); Adhesive: ScraPerfect (The Best Glue Ever); Other: Wreath ring


This is how I made my base before adding all those wonderful flowers. I traced the ring to the patterned paper, cut and adhered to the ring. Trimmed the excess, sanded the edges and painted the edges for the finishing touch. Don't forget to add the ribbon BEFORE adhering the flowers :0)

This project came together in no time. The longest time was cutting and embossing the dies BUT even that wasn't bad. I had my Spellbinders Grand Calibur® Die Cutting and Embossing Machine which has a large plate that fit all of my die templates! Cuts time (pun intended - lol!!) = LOVE THAT!!

Hope you give this a try!
Thanks for stopping by :)
