My 4th wreath - the second large one - was fun to make, although it took me forever to decorate! I have found that when one uses multiple colors/patterns of paper on a project such as this wreath, that it is VERY difficult to decide what to do when decorating it.
I used all my Bo Bunny dotted papers to make this wreath! 12 sheets (2 of 6 different colors) of 12 x 12 paper that I had just purchased not long ago and was going to save for something special. Well, I did make something special with it - but I wasn't planning on using ALL of it on one project! :<) Then, when it came time to decorate the wreath, I was blank. I wanted it to be as special as the wreath. It took me all day, of first one idea discarded and then another.
When I put the finished ornaments onto the wreath they just looked too plain and didn't really compliment the beautiful papers. They didn't look right with just a hanger or ribbon bow on top. I knew they needed a border or frame but of what? I looked through all my supplies about a hundred times and then I saw the new MS snowflake punch that I also had not used yet! I tried white and that didn't work. I thought I know, I would use the colors of the papers!
I was amazed that I was able to match the Bo Bunny papers with SU colored CS but it worked and so punched snowflakes from the colored CS and alternated the colors of the snowflakes in the order that they were on the wreath and attached them to a white circle that was then glued under the snowman ornament - but it still didn't feel right. So I looked through all my drawers again and again - discarding one thing after another - until I came to the snowballs. Aha! I added them to the wreath and gave one to each snowman and here is the finished wreath. I hope that you like it! :<)
I will post the tutorial on Monday - and I still have the remaining small wreaths to share with you. :<) I am so taken by this origami that I am looking at all the videos/tutorials I can find and I am busy making flowers, etc. It is magic to me to see how one can just fold a piece of paper and create something beautiful! :<) But then, I think when I watch heat embossing turn from powder to glaze that this is magical too!
