I know, I know, it's only September 1st, but I'm already prepping for the Christmas craziness. Some of my friends, who attended a big Christmas workshop last year, want to do a cards only day this year. This is the first style card they chose - my take on a Christmas mini-bag from the new Stampin' Up! Christmas catalog. This one I used Certainly Celery and Garden Green. The patterned paper is left over from a few years ago - Foof-a-la-la-la (no kidding!).
I cut a circle using my Mervy (purple) circle punch. I'm not sure, I think it's 3 inch diameter. I used a pencil to trace the circle in the center of my vanilla cardstock. This was my guide for making my wreath. I cut about 20 circles of each: 3/4 in and 1/2 in. I just glued each circle individually in a pattern I liked. No real method to it. After I was happy with my wreath, I added three buttons and a pretied bow. I think if I do it again, I might change the color of the modern label I punched for the sentiment. I would also make the vanilla 'center' 4in x 4 1/4 in (instead of the 4x4 I did here).
