Hi all, can you believe that Halloween is almost here? If you are like me,I don’t have my Halloween box of decorations down yet because i have been busy . But ,what’s the crafty girl to do? Make your own Halloween decor of course! So, today I’m stopping by to share a large paper wreath I made using the simple stories say cheese Halloween collection. First I took four 12 x 12 coordinating pattern papers and cut them all in half so that each pattern paper you have to strips paper for each. I then accordion fold every piece .I then connected them all together to make one long strip. Next, I took the two ends and glue them together which will form your circular base. Set that aside now and grab a piece of cardboard or cereal box . Cut a 12 inch circle. Now at the 12 inch circle of cardboard will be your base for holding your strip of accordion circle paper. Shape your accordion strip to a circle put down glue on your base and lay it on top . Now cut a 4 inch circle of a coordinating patterned paper to cover the middle hole and glue down . Then ,embellish the center with stickers or chipboard stickers from the collection . Last I punched two holes on the top and put a ribbon through so to hang the paper wreath.
Now, you know i Just had to make a scrapbook page too -For this page i used the polka dot pattern paper for the background and then layered the purple wrmk cardstock paper on top and doodled around the edges with a black marker. I used its of pattern papers from the collection to mat my photo of my middle daughter and then embellished with cutaparts,stickers,diecuts and chipboard stickers to frame the photo some more.
Supplies I used :
adhesive and doodling pen from my stash
Thanks for stopping by and happy creating!
