Issue 65 of PaperCrafter was our Christmas extravaganza, which included a fantastic wreath that our in-house Corinne Bradd devised to see in the season.  It’s the perfect project for using up odd scraps of papers or alternatively, showing off your favourite ones!

METHOD: Pretty Christmas Wreath

Cut a 20cm circle from cardboard and gold card and use a craft knife to cut 12cm circles from the middle of each. Glue together

Cut several strips of patterned paper, 1.5cm by 10cm. Bend into loops and glue

Staple a row of loops around the outside of the ring

Fix a second ring of loops inside the first, spacing them between the first ring

Add a final row of loops in the same way to completely cover the base ring

Use punches or a die-cutting machine to cut two sizes of stars and circles from leftover paper

Layer the stars and circles together with foam pads to create 3D motifs

Place the star motifs around the inside of the ring using stacks of foam pads

Punch tiny stars from leftover gold card and glue to a few of the loops around the ring
