Autumnal Display
1. Draw a 25cm wide circle on strong card, then draw a concentric 17cm wide circle inside and cut out to make a ring. Glue onto another piece of card and cut around the ring. Repeat until the wreath base is four layers thick. Wrap thick jute yarn around the entire ring, ensuring an even layer. Secure the yarn at the back.

2. Download the foliage templates from our website and upload onto the Brother ScanNCut SDX1200. Save each shape individually so they can be resized and flipped to suit. Group separate parts of the fern and seedhead motifs before resizing to avoid losing the cut-out parts.

3. Group all of the motifs together within a 15cm square on the screen. Resize, duplicate and rotate so you can cut as many shapes as possible from one piece of card. Copy this layout and place into the remaining corners of the layout screen. Cut four pieces of card, 15cm square, in different colours and fix to the mat before cutting the entire arrangement in one pass. Repeat for several other shades of cardstock.

4. Take the main leaf motifs and arrange them in spectrum order. Glue them to the wreath base with PVA glue, allowing them to extend the edge at the same angle. Using this layout as a guide, begin adding the other foliage cut-outs. Keep the colour groups close but allow the shades to merge for a soft rainbow effect.
