Hi everyone! I'm at it again! I just can't seem to stop making these wreaths. I made 3 of each of these last week. You know when your friends and family see them they all want one! If you would like to see how I made these wreaths (and enter my simply score tool give away) I posted a tutorial awhile ago you will find that thread here--->click here.  If you have any questions about how I made my wreaths feel free to send me an email at pebbles4@ptd.net

It took me about 1 1/2 hours to make each wreath (don't forget I have a little one I'm chasing so it might take you a little less time).  Plus, I have found that the quickest way to make the lollies is to score first and then cut.  In other words, if you are using two sided designer series paper then most likely you will be using the pattern on the other side, so cut your dsp at 3" x 12" and score every 1/4".  Once you are finished with your scoring then cut your dsp in half so that now you should have 2 strips of scored dsp that measures 1 1/2" x 12".  Since I was making more than one wreath using the same dsp I cut my dsp at 6" x 12"- then I scored every 1/4" and then I cut my paper into 1 1/2" x 12" strips.

I forgot to mention yesterday that I do have two size lollies on my wreaths.  For the larger size I cut my dsp at 1 1/2" x 12" and for the smaller lollies I cut my dsp at 1" x 12".  To make it even easier, I'll cut my strip of dsp at 2 1/2" x 12" and then score every 1/4" and then I'll cut off my 1" for the smaller lollie.  This way you will not be scoring so much and you will be able to make your wreaths so much faster.  I also wanted to mention that cardboard will work for the backing of your wreath.  Just do like I did and find two larger round items to place on your cardboard and trace around.  A dinner plate and a salad plate work perfect for this.

This is a fall wreath I made using the new designer series paper found in our current holiday mini catalog. I was able to make 3 wreaths out of one package of designer series paper and I have enough to make 1 more. I also used my paper scraps to create some fall cards. I'll post those cards tomorrow so be sure to stop and visit me tomorrow.


Below I posted photos of the Stampin' Up! designer series paper and buttons that I used to make my fall wreath.  The designer series paper and buttons are both available in our current holiday mini catalog.  I also use some neutral buttons and 1 1/4" grosgrain ribbon which are both available in our idea book and catalog.

Designer Series Paper Spice Cake       # 124003 - $10.95
Designer Buttons Spice Cake               # 124113 - $7.95
Designer Buttons Neutral Collection     # 119743 - $8.95
1-1/4 Inch Striped Grosgrain Ribbon Soft Suede   #125060 $9.95
(I didn't use soft suede ribbon- my ribbon is a retired color, but soft suede is the current color that would match the Spice Cake designer series paper).


And this is the Christmas wreath that I made using the new designer series paper from the current holiday mini catalog.  Again, if you would like to see how I made my wreath please see my tutorial that I posted here----->click here.

More wreaths!! LOVE them!! I'm definitely trying this out. Thanks for the trick on doing the scoring and then cutting. I was finding the scoring kind of tedious (so is folding!!).
