Paper Christmas Wreath

This is a project I am working on for an upcoming class.  In November I am going to offer a wreath and the Stampin' UP Simply Scored Scoring Tool as a "bundle".  The Paper Players have a Christmas Challenge to use Red and Green.  So I combined my class idea with the classic colors of Red and Green to come up with this project!

 I used Letters to Santa Designer Series Paper as well as Cherry Cobbler and Always Artichoke Cardstock to make the "lollies".  I really like the way my first wreath turned out:).

 I used the Tags Til Christmas stamp set as well as the Ornament Punch to add some interest to the wreath.  I then used Crystal Effects to give the ornaments shine.
Using Bells and Boughs and Petite Pairs, I added this embellishment.  It is colored with markers, sponged with Cherry Cobbler Ink, and has Crystal Effects and Dazzling Details Glitter.
Unfortunately I don't have much access to cardboard, so I went to the craft store and bought a metal wreath to use as the base.  It had interconnected circles so I just cut them apart and Voila, I have 4 different size paper wreath bases. I used mostly a hot glue gun for adhesive as it dries so quickly.

While I had everything out, I made a second wreath using most of the same tools.  I did use the Big Shot and Northern Frost Decorative Strip on this second wreath and a lot of Vanilla Smooch Spritz on the snowflakes.

Happy Stampin!

As always, only Stampin' UP! products were used.
