I wanted to create a wreath with butterflies. I decided that I would give up-cycling and a wreath another go. Here is what I came up with:
Now here is how you make this fun Springy wreath:
First I took my Big Shot and I used the Beautiful Embosslits Die and the Beautiful Butterflies Bigz Die. I chose my card stock colors based on the colors that were found in the Summer Smooches Designer Series Paper. I love how easy Stampin Up! makes it to coordinate everything.
Then I twisted two hangers into a circle shape, and I used wire cutters to trim the excess. To make the shape hold I hot glued it together.
Then I took my butterflies and I started layering them and gluing them to my wire wreath.
This is a close up of part of the wreath... I wanted to show how much detail is really going on in this wreath. There are tiny butterflies that are hard to pick up on without a close up.
Then I free handed some triangles and I stamped a little spring banner.
Then I simply glued the banner to the back of the wreath with hot glue. This is a picture of the back of my wreath... I think that a lot of times the back of a project will tell more than the front.
So, there you have it! If you have any questions on this tutorial please let me know! I also want to point out that a project like this would be a card stock investment, but I only used about one sheet of each color.
So, you'll have tons of colors to make tons of other great projects.
