Creating a simple spring wreath out of recycled paper flowers.0
It's me again.
A few weeks ago I took part in a bridal show, as a result I have a lot of pre made and used small paper flowers simply just lying around.
I'm always asked what I do with the old flowers.
Today I'm simply going to take you through one idea.
- A wire wreath frame
- a silicon heat mat
- Glue gun
- Candy pink Cumbria Card 270gsm
- lockwood green cumbria card
- Violet plain card 270gsm
- Billard green plain card 210gsm
- intensive lilac card 160gsm
- New lilac smooth card 240gsm
For this tutorial all the elements had been previously used so they are all prepped.
To start assembling start with layering the leaves at the base of the wreathe frame. This is where your silicon mat becomes very useful it will stop you ruining your work mat as its heat resistant.
Once you have finished putting the leaves on the base you now need to start placing your flowers. You can secure these on top on the leaves.
Once all the gaps are filled the project in done.
All in all this wreath should take you 30 mins to complete.
I hope you like it.
