A Christmas Wreath!

Hey everyone!

I feel like all I've been doing lately is making Christmas cards (which is a good thing) but I wanted to switch it up a little and make a DIY project.  Since I have a lot of scraps laying around I thought I'd put them to good use in today's project.  The Jingle paperpack from CTMH was one of my favorite holiday packs!  I since had about 7 sheets of it on hand I wanted to make something with it.  I've been admiring a TON of really cool Christmas items on blogland!  This one HERE at Something from Cassie, really caught my eye!  You should check out Cassie's blog- lots of goodies I tell you!!

Here is my 'Christmas Wreath' I made today- I love how it turned out!  Sure there are some areas that aren't perfect or didn't turn out how I wanted it to- that's the special touch of a homemade project in my opinion.

For this project, I started with 12x12 sheets of paper and cut (4) 6x6 squares.  I rolled them and used liquid glass to adhere them.  I cut out a piece of cardboard (circle shaped) for the backing and simply glued the pieces on to my liking (cut each piece in half).  Then embellish as desired.

The center was cut with the circut.  I used both Art Philosophy and Artiste.

I'm entering this wreath into the following challenges:

Cut It Up- 3D Holiday Item with diecut
Totally Papercrafts- anything christmasy but a card
Joyful Stamper- anything goes
wagsnwhiskersrubberstamps- Christmas Theme
Cimbo Cracker- Anything Goes

Thanks for checking out my wreath!  Have a fun day! ~Kim
