SCRAPPY SCAVENGER'S SHIMMERING SHAMROCKS BLOG HOP!

Hey all! :) Thanks for joining me as I take part in Tanya "Scrappy Scavenger's" Shimmering Shamrock Blog Hop! :) We are gonna have 6 days of BLOG HOPPING FUN! :) You probably got here from Letitia's Blog! So, if that is where you are coming from, then you are in the right place, my friend! :) BUT, if you are lost and you would like to start at the beginning just go to Tanya's Blog!

I will have a complete list of all the blogs that are participating in this hop towards the bottom of this post. I ALSO will have some pretty yummy BLOG CANDY towards the end of this post too. :) I will have some small rules to be eligible...they aren't too hard so don't fret. :)

For my project, I decided to do a paper wreath. I have been wanting to try these for a while and have never had a good reason to try one. I have a wreath for Christmas and a little thing I hang up for Valentine's Day. BUT....I like EVERY HOLIDAY and really don't need too many excuses for a trip to my craft area. This wreath was pretty cheap to make too.

Here is what you need: A ten inch wreath form. I got this from Dollar Tree for $1.
A 1 and 1/2 inch flower punch. I used a fiskars hibiscus flower squeeze punch for this project.
At least 4 pieces of 12x12 cardstock....I used 4 different patterns too.
Pearl top stick pins.
twine
ribbon..I used two types.

The first thing you will want to do is punch the flowers out of the papers.


Once that is done, take a pen and put it in the middle of the flower and fold the flower up around it. This will shape the flowers for the wreath.


Then start pinning your flowers around the wreath form! :) You can't do this wrong! :) Lastly, make a bow and attach to the wreath! :)


Then hang it where you want to! :)



I really hope you try this. I am not quite sure what I was scared of. It is a fun little project! :)

Now, for my BLOG CANDY!!!!! To be eligible- just leave a comment and that will give you one chance to win! :) For two chances, BECOME A FOLLOWER! :) If you are already a follower or if you are a new follower....let me know in ANOTHER comment. :) ALSO--PLEASE LEAVE YOUR EMAIL. I NEED TO BE ABLE TO GET A HOLD OF YOU IF YOU ARE PICKED. I HAVE HAD TWO TIMES THAT PEOPLE HAVE MISSED OUT BECAUSE I HAVE NO WAY TO GET A HOLD OF THEM! :(  So, here is what you can win! :)


You will get 4 pieces of Jillibean Soup Patterned Paper. Ribbon. Square brads from Recollections, Studio 18 glitter glue, felt topped clips from Making Memories, Green Bling.
