Ruffle Wreath Fun


Hello there!  This is a fun week over at the Stampin' Royalty challenge blog, it's Anything Goes week!  You can create anything and head on over to the Stampin' Royalty to link it up, I can't wait to see what you come up with!


I found this fabulous wreath tutorial over at The Shabby Creek Cottage, and knew that I would have to try it out, see, I have a weakness for both ruffles and book page wreaths, so I really could not help myself.  I thank Gina so much for showing us how to make it!

I made my wreath to hang on my repurposed vintage window that sits on my mantle, but until the seasonal decorations are put away in January, it will reside on a closet door.  The beauty of this wreath is that you can make it any size you need, so I sized it to fit perfectly on my old window.


I added inch measurements so that I could keep my ruffles all aligned.



I found the perfect vintage book at the local Restore for a quarter!


I knew that I could dress it up a bit with my fabulous Stampin' Up items, so off I went to find the perfect papers to make my flowers.  Most of you might remember this flower from the Circle Tutorial post.  The Afternoon Picnic DSP fit my home colors beautifully.


Early Espresso Core'dinations paper was die cut with the floral frames framelits, then embossed with both the honeycomb and houndstooth embossing folders for some dimension to my second flower.

 
 I love this natural ribbon flourish and it's Bermuda bay ribbon, its one of my favorite parts!


Shabby chic scrunchy ribbon bow?  I love the way it adds to the wreath, just the perfect amount of fluff!


I love my wreath here or there, it was a fun and somewhat easy project, give it a try, you will catch the wreath making bug, I definitely have!  Thanks so much for stopping by today, I hope you were inspired, enjoy!
