Hi Everyone! We just completed the Fall Wreath project which is pictured on Page 6 in the mini Holiday catalog. I have to say that it was a lot of hard work, but I’m so glad I did this. I had never made a medallion/rosette before, and there are just so many ways to make each one different and unique by just using different edge punches, different stamps, different sizes, etc. In the end, I was very happy that I took the time to do this project, and now I can bring it out for future Thanksgivings to come! Here is a picture of how mine turned out. I enjoyed spending the time with everyone who undertook this project with me!
Here are the instructions below if you want to tackle this project yourself!
For the wreath you need 16 medallions:
1 large green – Stamp leaf image randomly
1 large green stripe designer paper
1 large brown – run through embossing folder folded in half so you emboss 2 sides together, then
emboss the other end that was hanging out of the folder
2 large yellow flowered designer paper
1 large chocolate polka dot designer paper
1 large mustard cardstock
1 large newspaper print medallion
1 large red – scallop the edge first, then fold and glue – STICK IN BRAD BEFORE GLUE SETS
1 large brown – SCALLOP EDGE FIRST BEFORE FOLDING
1 medium red – STICK IN BRAD BEFORE GLUE SETS
1 medium green – Stamp linen background first, then fold
1 medium newspaper print designer paper
1 medium yellow flower designer paper
1 green plain cardstock medallion
1 small red cardstock
MEDALLION SIZE MEASUREMENTS:
Large medallions: 2 x 12 inch strip – TWO of them OR
8 x 2 inch strips – THREE of them
Medium: 10 x 1-1/2 inch strip – TWO of them
Small: 10 x 1 inch strip – TWO of them
Score every 1/2 inch for the wreath medallions.
If you make one – I’d love to see it!
