The other day we were out and about and stopped at Archivers (a really cute scrapbooking chain store). I'm not a scrapbooker or a paper crafter, but I saw this "dear lizzy" scrapbooking paper and fell in love. I decided to pass because I had no idea what to do with a stack of paper.
A week passed and I was still dreaming about the paper and while on pinterest I realized I had a board titled "paper crafts". Well duh! Now I had a board full of inspiration and a reason to buy paper. Yay! So that day out we went again and I bought 2 of sheets of each design in the collection.
When we got home I instantly new what to make with all of this paper. I am really excited to share with you over the next few days what I came up with. The last day will be the big finale:)
Here is the first project. At Michaels I found these really cool wooden flat wreaths in the floral section.They had nice big sizes (I think this one is 20 or 22") and the price ($2!) was much cheaper than the pricey styrofoam ones.
This is so simple to do:
Just wrap the entire wreath with yarn adding some hot glue here and there. I used sugar n cream cotton in a medium shade of pink. Then make different size pinwheels using scrapbook paper and add some buttons or any embellishments you wish. There is a great tutorial for the pinwheels here. Then simply hot glue the pinwheels to the wreath, I like mine grouped together in the lower corner.
