I saw this wreath on the SB Expo page on Facebook and I instantly knew I wanted to try it! So I pulled out Kreaxions Punch #907, the Kreaxions Star Stencil and my Kreaxions Circle Cutter along with some chipboard and 3 different papers and started working.
The beauty of this wreath is that you could use ANY of the Kreaxions punches and ANY theme or holiday! I chose July 4th but you could do Christmas, Halloween, Easter, Thanksgiving, anything!
Other Materials – Cardstock – Bazzill; Patterned Papers – Echo Park, DCWV; Pen – EK Success; Paint – Making Memories; Eyelet – Recollections; Ribbons – Michael’s
Here's a tutorial for how to make this wreath:
Cut an 8” circle from chipboard using Kreaxions Circle Cutter. Cut a 6” circle from the other circle using Kreaxions Circle Cutter. Paint chipboard circle. Cut 3½ x 12” strip from each paper color (I used 3). You may need more than one strip from each color depending on the punch you use. Using the strips you cut, punch each one with Kreaxions Punch #907 with no template. Space previously punched edge against left side of the punch to get next punch.
Using a paper trimmer, cut each punched piece at far edges of strip.
Layer your punched strips on top of chipboard circle overlapping edges. Attach and pleat ribbon to cover tops of banner at inner circle edge. Tie a bow with ribbon and attach where you determine your top center of wreath to be. Using the Kreaxions Star Stencil, cut two stars. Attach the two stars together so you have both sides of pattern showing. Use paint or ink to distress edges. Cut a 3” circle from white cardstock using the Kreaxions Circle Cutter. Adhere leftover punched pieces around top of circle and outline with a pen. Add sentiment and use paint or ink to distress edge. Insert an eyelet on top of star and tie a piece of ribbon long enough to hang from the top. (Attach the ribbon to the back of the wreath!)
