Christmas Wreath

Project by Leah

I was so excited to get the Joys of the Season Cricut cartridge this month from Scrapbook Pal. It is a beautiful Christmas cartridge with tons of cuts for endless projects. I decided to make a wreath using the Poinsetta and Holly cuts. Here are the directions:

Cut the poinsetta on page 69, 3 times out of green cardstock at 3". Cut again 3 times out of red cardstock with the layer feature on at 3". Cut one last time in pink cardstock with the layer feature on at 1 1/2", 3 times.

*If you have heavy cardstock use that, but if not just cut your lighter cardstock multiple times and adhere layers together until you get desired thickness.*

Cut the Holly on page 69, 3 times out of dark green cardstock at 2". I did the reinforced method to build up my lighter cardstock for the holly, worked great!

Before assembling, with Swiss Dots embossing folder emboss the green layer of the poinsetta. Adhere all layers together, add rhinestones and pearls and adhere to your wreath base. Attach bird. Hang, and enjoy!
