This past Saturday, my upline, Gloria Plunkett hosted the Luv 2 Stampin GA team meeting. During our meetings, we are able to spend time making various projects. So today I am sharing a Lily Impressions 3-D project designed by Gloria for the team. This special 3-D project is a small wreath that is the perfect size to hang by your desk or in a work cubicle. Mine is going to hang in craft room by my work desk. The project features the Lily Impressions Designer Series Paper. This beautiful Lily Impressions is available in the Sale-a-Bration brochure. With a purchase of $50 (before shipping & taxes), you can select FREE.
To begin, use a 4″ Styrofoam wreath as the base. Next, Lily Impressions Designer Series Paper is cut into strips and wrapped around the wreath. When wrapping the strips, overlap the end of each strip and glue matching the ends of the Designer Series Paper strip. Before wrapping the strips, cut a “v” in both ends of the paper strips. TIP: When adding the strips, slightly overlap to cover the Styrofoam wreath. For embellishing the wreath, use the Starburst Punch to cut a piece of Pretty Peacock cardstock. Cut a stitched circle from Whisper White cardstock using the Stitched Shapes Dies. Then, top with your initial cut from Melon Mambo cardstock using the Hand-Lettered Prose Dies. NOTE: Cut three initials and layer to add dimension. With the Sprig punch, cut two sprigs from Sparkle Glimmer Paper. Sandwich the sprigs between the Whisper White stitched circle and the Pretty Peacock cardstock. Attach the circle to the middle of the wreath by using Multipurpose Liquid Glue along the edge of the cardstock circle. Finish by adding a Whisper White Polka Dot ribbon bow on the front. Glue a small ribbon circle on the back to use for hanging.
Isn’t this a cute wreath? What’s great is you can create your own unique wreath by selecting other coordinating colors for the embellishment. For a larger Styrofoam wreath, just adjust the length and width of the strips from the Designer Series Paper you select.
