I just love the CTMH Stamp set "Remarkable Wreath." But I don't have it yet, so I came up with something to tide me over until that time. I do have a small maple leaf punch, so I thought that might work well for the greenery.
What do you think? I used Olivia papers, cocoa cardstock and ink, and additional colors for the Fall leaves (from CTMH).
I hope this little pic tutorial might help, if you wish to make this yourself. Following is the steps I took to make the wreath.
I used a circle that was 2 1/2 inches and it fit nicely on the 5 1/2 x 4 1/4 card. You can adjust the size to fit what your working on. Taking mounting tape in 1/2" pieces I went around the outside of the circle.
Now taking the 1/2 inch tape pieces I cut them in half diagonally to make a pie shape. This fills in the spaces around the circle. There will be extra that will over hang and this you will just cut off. (The circle on the bottom right of the picture shows what it looks like before you trim away the extra. The circle on the upper right of the picture shows what it looks like after you trim away the extra.)
Now, taking small mounting squares, go around the entire circle trying to stay in the middle of the previous tape that was put down.
Here is where you get to add your foilage. (Please note: After all the wreath is completed, I cut out the center of the wreath. It was easier to handle during the making of the wreath to leave the center in until you are done.)
Well I hope that your week is going well. Thanks so much for stopping by. If you have any questions please leave a comment and I will do my best to help.
Happy Crafting!! Sending a smile, Joanie
