While going thru my e-mails last night I came across the Just Us Girls Challenge #162. This week's Challenge is a Technique Challenge that I thought was pretty cool. The challenge is to make a Ribbon Wreath, and they shared this link to a video tutorial. I watched the video several times, and then gave it a try. It took me three times before I was finally happy with how the wreath turned out.
After making the Ribbon Wreath I pulled out some DP and layered it on my cardstock, then used a Circle Nestabilities to cut the hole to create a window. The Wreath was attached to my base with Score Tape, the red bow was attached with Mini Glue Dots, and then I added red bling to represent the berries.
On the inside I put candles to shine thru the center of the wreath. Since I put the sentiment on the outside I left the inside with just the candles for now until I figure out what I want to put with them.
I truly enjoyed creating the wreath and I love how it turned out.
Until next time ... Enjoy!
