I have seen so many beautiful wreaths made with DSP and I thought I'd give it a try using a picture frame. A glue gun worked best for me in applying and making the flowers. Please click on the picture to get a better view.

This is frame #1.

This is frame #2.

I made these frames and cards for my step-daughter's birthdays.

Up close images so you can see what I did.

After punching out the scallop circle, I scored it so it looked like hearts.

I used a skinny piece of DSP to thread through the button.

I used Mary Brown's tutorial, click here, for making this beautiful bow!!!

I also use Perfect Pennants Bigz Die to get the circles to put under the scored flowers.

What I used:

DSP Mocha Morning....most strips were 12" x either 1", 1 1/4", 1 1/2"
Sometimes I would use the scallop punch on the strip THEN score between the scallops.
I used 1/2", 3/4" circle punch on top of the flower and the 1 3/4" and 2 3/8" scallop circle punches for under the flower. Along with the Bigz die Perfect Penants (to get the scalloped circles), I used the Itty Bitty Shapes punch as well.
For the leaves, I punched them out with the Blossom Petals Builder Punch, crimped them, then scored down the middle with the bone folder to give it a vein.
I used Neutrals Designer Buttons, Antique Brads, Chocolate Chip Grosgrain Ribbon (striped), and hemp twine for one of the buttons. Had to add some bling, Jewels basic Pearl!

Contact me if you have any questions!!! Please leave me a comment, I love to hear from you!!
