Tuesday Spring Wreath

Happy Tuesday!

How is your week going?  So far so good here but I have been struggling with either a cold or allergies- I am not quite sure.  Whatever it is it sure is kicking my butt! 

As I mentioned yesterday one of my assignments from Cord Scrapbook Studio was to create using the Bo Bunny Ambrosia line.  Yesterday I shared the layout and today I want to share my home decor piece.  For this Spring wreath I used my Silhouette to create all the layered flowers.  I cute out 74 flowers in different pattern papers. Here are directions to create this beautiful wreath.


Instructions:
  1.  Start with a 12 inch base- I used the base from Michael's.
  2. Cut flowers out of 3 coordinating pattern sheets of paper.  I used a 2.5 inch 3 layer flower from my Silhouette.
  3. Cut 1-12 leaves.
  4. Arrange on the base alternating patter paper and color. 
  5. Tuck the leaves randomly around the wreath.
  6. Use any fake flowers that are seasonal and glue on. 
  7. Cut a coordinating element.  I used a 5.5 inch butterfly from coordinating cardstock.  I also cut a second image out of thick cardstock to give the butterfly a little substance and glue on top of the flowers. 
  8. You can make this for any season.  It is so fun to make!


supplies
paper-bo bunny ambrosia
floral wreath base, flowers- michaels
cardstock- bazzill
buttons- paper trey ink

Thanks so much for stopping by today.  I will be back tomorrow with a Wednesday card.  See you then!  Have a wonderful and crafty day!

Pretty! I love those leaves - so nice that they are varied and not all the same. Looks like a great project for one of my 6x6 pads.
