Dies, First Edition Layered Flowers
Cardstock: glitter, patterned, mirri
Embellishments: ribbon, brad
Adhesives: double-sided tape; Glue Dots
1. Use a compass and pencil to draw concentric circles of 10cm and 20cm diameter onto scrap card, then cut out. Layer the card up to make a sturdy base ring. Snip red felt, 25cm square, and glue the card ring to the centre. Clip the outer edges of the felt into a wide fringe.
2. Fold the fringe over the edge of the ring and secure with double-sided tape. Clip out the centre of the felt and repeat to fully cover the wreath. Cut ribbon, 60cm, and tie through the ring with a neat reef knot. Position so that the knot is on the inside of the ring, then secure the ribbon loop with a decorative brad.
3. Thread more ribbon around the front of the loop and tie into a neat bow, trimming the ends into a ‘v’ shape. Wrap and tie four more pieces of ribbon equally around the wreath and make bows. Trim several leaf shapes from gold mirri card and two shades of glitter card.
4. Crease each one down the centre and fix to the wreath with Glue Dots, radiating out from the ribbon bows. Die cut flowers from a selection of thin patterned card. 5 Create the bloom by curling the shape around a quilling tool, starting from the outside of the rose and securing the coils with a Glue Dot on the base. Scatter the roses around the wreath and fix them in place.
