Christmas Wreath

For this week's Creative Expressions DT piece I have made a Christmas Wreath. I stumbled upon this fantastic tutorial on the Creative Expressions website and couldn't resist having a go! I'll not repeat how to make it here (the tutorial is really very easy to follow) but don't be tempted to use less ribbon - you really do need all 3m! For this wreath I used one colour of ribbon. I added some swirls from the Stylish Christmas 1 set in coordinating Distress Ink (there are 36 colours to choose from so you'll easily find the right shade!) to some faintly patterned paper
I then adhered my wreath with my normal glue and made a little banner using the same paper as the background and added a sentiment from the set and added Vintage Photo Distress Ink to the edges. The little balls on the end of the sentiment were stamped twice on the ends of the wreath's ribbon. This project was mounted on some card and will be a Christmas decoration in my home but would make a really special card for someone!

This is lovely Gabrielle. Such a lovely colour. We used to make these out of string as kids, but the ribbon is so pretty.
