We R Memory Keepers Cotton Tail Easter & Spring Designs by Sarinda

Sarinda has provided us all with inspiration with these projects created from the We R Memory Makers Cotton Tail I Want It All Bundle from FotoBella.

Hello Spring Wreath step by step instructions by Sarinda Jones

Can you believe this wreath is made from Coffee Filters.....

You could use these other lovely items. Brown paper lunch bags and old clothing patterns! Just Play and Create.
What you need- 
  • 1-2 boxes of Brown #4 Coffee Filters (I used 1.25 boxes)
  • Scallop circle punch (mine's 2.25 inches ek brand)
  • Foam wreath (mine’s 2”x15 3/4”x2”)
  • Unsharpened pencil or pen for the blunt edge
  • Glue Gun
  • Colored paper for Flowers. (We R Memory Keepers Cotton Tail Line)
  • (I used my Silhouette Cameo for all the flowers)
  • Bling for center of flowers.

When you punch your circles I was able to punch 3 per filter and stacked 2 at a time. This gave me 12 circles.

When you have a stack take your unsharpened pencil or pen and press it into the center of a circle so the circle folds up like a flower.

Put a dab of hot glue on the circle where the pencil makes a point and stick to your wreath form. Continue until your wreath looks like this. Keep in mind that I placed my folded flower filters really close together... You might consider placing about 1/2” apart then I know you will only need one box of filters.
Then use you flower punches or Silhouette to cut out your stackable flowers. I made a bunch and then just played with the colors and sizes. Really- Just Play-! Apply hot glue to the underside of the flower, press onto wreath in what ever random way you choose. Then Bling it up-! Start out by laying a few in your pattern, you can go back and fill in as you go. Add any other embellishments you desire. Enjoy and have fun for SPRING IS HERE-!

I have been "scrap-booking" most of my life in the form of journaling and my sketch pad. I have to say that I enjoy Scraping and tend to have several styles that I work in. I really love making backgrounds in ink and watercolor then applying paint and ink drawings or doodles to the surface. Oh and I also love to make pop ups with paper, 3D flowers.
