I’m so excited to share with you a quick tutorial on how to make this gorgeous Christmas wreath using Close to My Heart Paper. Check out my quick 4 minute video on Scrap Diva Retreats YouTube channel here:
You can see a picture of the Christmas wreath in the Close to My Heart catalog on page 74.
Gather your supplies:
X7188B Snowhaven Paper Packet
X7188C Snowhaven Complements
Z3008 Snowhaven Assortment
Z1790 Cricut® Artiste Collection
Cardboard wreath cutout
Step 1. Cut out the rosettes using Artiste Cricut Cartridge by Close to My Heart
1″, 11⁄2″, and 2″ Shift+Card <G> (cut several, p. 55) 21⁄2″ Accent 2 <g> (p. 55)
2 1⁄2″ Shift+Accent 2 <G> (p. 55)
3″ Shift+Accent 3 <G> (p. 55)
You want to make about 15 to 20 different rosettes using the different sizes noted above. While you are gluing your rosettes together… be patient and make sure that you hold each one until it dries completely.
I relaxed in the hot tub while I was working on mine. Just be careful not to get your paper wet!
I also watched a movie (Eat, Pray, Love). It was a great emotional movie that I’ve already seen before but I cried anyway!
Step 2. Cut out a wreath shape using a cardboard box. I used a large bowl to trace the shape of the wreath onto the box.
Eventually… after a year of working on your wreath (just kidding) it doesn’t take that long I swear… you will have all of your rosettes done and you can glue them onto your beautiful handmade cardboard cutout.
You will be so happy with your Christmas wreath and all of your friends will be SUPER impressed that you made it yourself 🙂
