Christmas Suite #1 DSP Wreath

Hi everyone,

Thanks for stopping by and for all your wonderful comments. I truly do appreciate each of you more than you know!

The project I'm sharing with you today has been created using the gorgeous 12" x 12" All Is Calm Designer Series Paper (DSP) from Stampin' Up! Those of you who are regular readers might recall that DSP isn't really my thing, but that cannot be said of this set. I love it!!!

Here's a glimpse if you've not yet seen it, although my photo doesn't really do it justice!

I created the bow with the Gift Bow Bigz L Die from Lost Lagoon card and one of the papers last Monday and forgot to take a photo of it as it was, so the pic below is a sneaky peek of it in place on the wreath. I also cut each of the papers in half, then cut half of them into 6" x 1" inch strips and put the remainder safely to one side to be used in other decorations.

On Friday, during my Thanksgiving vacation, I curled the strips, but decided not to curl the white and silver because by now I had 120 curls and it looked to be enough.

I used straight pins to attach everything to a 12" diameter flat backed styrofoam form and started by putting the bows in place, then working from the inside out. It is so light that all I've used to attach it to the inside of my living room door are a half dozen Stampin' Dimensionals on the back...

I LOVE the result and those who have seen it before I've written this post are amazed that it's the first time I've ever attempted this type of wreath!
