Burlap and Blooms Wreath

Stampin' Up! is starting to come out with the cutest kits!  I really enjoy working with them, because the designing is done.  It's sometimes nice not to have to think too much and to simply put something together that's all there for you.  Yesterday, I put together the Burlap And Blooms Simply Created Wreath Kit, because I wanted to showcase it at my Sale-A-Bration Kick-Off, and it was an enjoyable part of my afternoon.  It didn't take long, everything was included, and I didn't even feel the need to innovate.  Here's how it turned out:


I was really pleased with the result.  There are four different kinds of flowers that adorn that burlap-wrapped wreath form.  The most fun to make were the fringe flowers.  You can make those yourself if you order yourself some of the new Fringe Scissors in the Occasions Catalogue.  I'll show you how in another blog post.


Everything is pre-printed, so you just pop them out and work with them.  I used a glue gun for a lot of the assembling and mounting but the fringe flowers come with their own powerful adhesive as well.  The buttons, brads and even the linen thread for the buttons was all included.


Would you like to spend an enjoyable couple of hours, putting one of these kits together, in the company of others and with me to guide the process?  If so, you may be interested in this class:

I love your flowers! I struggled with mine and ended up using cardstock. How did you attach your hanger? Did you just loop it in back and hot glue? it?

Hi, Carolyn. I just looped and used hot glue. Those flowers can be tricky but SU has a great video tutorial on its site.
