Create an Easter Wreath using the Expressions in Ink Paper

It’s Easter weekend coming up soon -and I thought I share this very easy project that you can create at home using your scraps of pretty paper!

I actually saw this wreath in the Annual Catalogue using the Expressions in Ink designer series paper. I didn’t have the stampset nor the dies – so I used the Flowers of Home and Hand Penned dies instead.

Don’t forget that this is the LAST month for the Annual Catalogue.

I am super excited to see the new Annual! I am hosting a launch party for the new Catty on the 7th May at 2pm!

You are welcome to join me –you can RSVP here.

This is a good project to show you how you can use whatever you have in your stash to create similar projects.

So, if you don’t have the exact same paper or dies – use whatever you have at home.

Ingredients

You will need a sheet of designer series paper  – I cut mine to 6″x6″.  You will also need dies that have leaves and flowers shaped in different sizes.

I used the gold stripe paper in the Expressions in Ink paper to die cut my wreath, and the floral print for the flowers and leaves.

 

 

 

Directions:

Using a pencil, draw a circle on the 6″x6″ paper. This will help you create a proper template to place the pieces.

You will then need to cut out all the flowers and decorative elements for the wreath – I used the Hand Penned dies. I was very deliberate about where I placed the dies on the paper – so that I could get some bold colours for the flowers.

Arranging all the elements in a pile on my worksurface -I started to glue them down using my stampin’ shammy and tombo glue.

You may find it helpful to use a tweezer to hold down the paper, while dabbing it with a little sponge. Both of these are available at my online store.

I used a combination of dimensionals and glue to create the look I was after – and eventually built up the wreath nicely on the left hand side with an assortment of flowers and leaves in different colours. This designer series paper has some interesting prints -so you can create any look you like!Easter wreath

I then cut down the 6″x 6″ paper so that it was in proportion.

This can be framed, or you can glue a dowel stick behind it and make it into a hanging. Either way – you have a very beautiful, bespoke wreath to celebrate Easter coming up this weekend!
