Paper Wreath using Holiday Frosting Paper Pack


I tried something new at the weekend!  
I saw a paper wreath in Laura Ashley over the weekend for £12.00!  I said to my daughter ......."I can make that with my Pazzles Inspiration, I think I will have a go!"

When I saw the beautiful 
Holiday Frosting Paper Pack recently at Lettering Delights by Sheri Berry I couldn't wait to try out this project which is just perfect to show off the GORGEOUS paper pack.

On Sunday, the kids were doing their homework, husband was cooking a roast and I assembled this wreath at the kitchen table (hubby took photos of me assembling the wreath!).

I am so pleased how it has turned out that I wanted to share it with you.


First, I printed out lots of sheets of the papers. I LOVE them all so I kept printing!  I ran the A4 paper through the printer twice so I had a design on both sides.

How to make the paper wreath.

I made the paper wreath base using my Pazzles Inspiration!
I drew x2 circles in my Pazzles Studio Pro software.  One at 11.5" and the other at 6".


SELECT ALL and JUSTIFIED  centrally on the page.

I used the thickest card I had in my stash and cut x3 wreaths and glued them together.


I then used my guillotine to cut heaps of strips 3/4" by 6".


I folded each 6" strip gently in half and glued together, then attached to the wreath.
I used a glue gun for the very 1st time!  It enabled me to assemble all the pieces 
to the wreath very quickly.  


Working my way round the wreath - the trickiest bit was to decide which 
paper strip to use as they are all so adorable!!



Almost done!  I attached a ribbon to the wreath at the back and hung it up to enjoy!


What gorgeous designs Sheri Berry has come up with.
