When I first saw the new Mini Catalogue I knew it was going to be a hit and unfortunately some products sold out quite quickly. Thankfully though most will be back into stock in the next couple of weeks. I always try to avoid showing you projects using products that you can’t order. After all no one wants to fall in love with something only to find you can’t buy it. So that’s why I’ve waited until now to show you this pretty wreath project using the Paper Florist Dies.
PAPER FLORIST DECOR
This quick decor project actually started as I was clearing out a box in the basement and came across a 5″ cane wreath. To be honest I’ve no idea where it came from but similar wreaths are available in lots of craft stores. Anyway I immediately thought it would be perfect to decorate using the Paper Florist Dies set.
I began by choosing a colour palette of Garden Green, Crushed Curry and Basic Black and reached for my card scrap pockets. From the Paper Florist Dies I took the triple large petal die and cut three of these from Crushed Curry Card. Then I found the triple small flower bud die and cut three of these as well. From the Garden Green Card scraps I cut three of the solid leaf along with three of the triple flower stem. Finally from Basic Black Card I die-cut the long fringe shape.
Using my Bone Folder I curved the 9 large petals and fixed them together with Multipurpose Liquid Glue (Tombow). Then I rolled up the black fringe aand glued down the end before adding that to the centre of the yellow flower.
Next I glued all the small yellow flower buds behind the tops of the triple stems. However, to keep things interesting I trimmed some and left different amounts of the yellow showing.
From there I glued the leaves and assembled stems onto the wreath before finishing off with the large yellow flower. And just like that my project was complete.
I love how this turned out. However if I get bored I can add more flowers and leaves, perhaps in different colours. Or I could remove the current arrangement completely and start again from scratch. With all the different flower and leaf options in the Paper Florist Dies the possibilities are endless. I’m so glad they’re back in stock.
