Autumnal wreath

Hello there! How are you? I hope you are doing well! Its been a bust few days here - still chilly but with the promise of work starting on the pipes next week I am hoping the chill won't last too much longer. At least indoors!

Today I would like to share the Autumnal wreath with you that I made for Fiskarettes UK that was on their page last week. Here is the final thing...

And here's how I made it ... I started with a  polystyrene ring and covered it with fabric.

I added  some slap it on and some luscious. Then I coloured some paper with inks and added stamping.

I cut this into strips using my fiskars guillotine ..

Then used my butterfly squeeze punch to punch some shapes,

I also punched some stars from different materials using my multimedia star punch.

I added these and all the butterflies to the ring ..

I then puncjed more butterflies and some flowers using scrap paper and added these to the ring to end up with the finished item.

I had another item on the facebook page for Fiskarettes UK today - here's a sneak peak...

Take care!

Lots of huggles
