3d Easter Wreath
CardzTV. The challenge is to make a 3D project for Easter. Now I thought about an Easter basket, and an Easter box to hold some candy, but then I saw this wreath in the Silhouette store and just knew it was what I wanted to make!
I cut the wreath at the default size it came up on my mat. I cut four of the circle bases and adhered them together to make sure the base was sturdy enough. I cut the leaves flowers and used a wooden skewer to curl them to make them more natural looking. I then adhered the leaves to the wreath base.
Next I cut the base layers of the eggs out of white and the decorative layers out of the Core' de nations sand able paper. I embossed each of the different decorative layered colors with different embossing folders before sanding and adhering to my eggs. I then adhered the eggs to my wreath and then the flowers.
To finish the wreath I used my Tim Holtz tiny attacher to attach a loop of ribbon to the back of the wreath so I could hang it. Using a separate piece of ribbon I tied a bow closer to the wreath. Then I use the CardzTV Going in Circles stamp set to stamp Happy Easter on a bright yellow card stock and punched it out using my 1 1/4" punch. I put the sentiment into the center of an extra flower and added a pink button. Finally I tide a tiny bow out of a scrap of the blue ribbon and attached it to my button with a glue dot.
Now it is your turn. Make a 3D project for Easter and share it with us at CardzTV. Mary is giving away a set of her stamps so be sure to get your project link for your chance to win a set of her awesome stamps!!
