May Creative Challenge-Wreaths

Hey Everyone, long time no see!! Are you ready, because it is time for this month's Creative Challenge from My Favorite Things!!

Our Design Team Creative Challenge is a monthly feature, where we challenge our design team to explore their creative side using a specific theme, product or technique. This month, we're creating wreaths. Be sure to check the MFT Blog for a list of all the designers who have put their MFT stamps and/or Die-namics dies to work to create a wreath for you today!





For my wreath today, I did no stamping...but I sure gave my Cuttlebug a workout, LOL!! I started by wrapping 2in Purple satin ribbon around a 12in" foam wreath form. I secured it with Scor Tape and some extra ribbon to cover the seam. I purchased the form and ribbon at Michael's. My co-worker just had a baby girl, so I decided to make this for her. Not my normal color scheme, but I think it will work for Addalynne's room! 




I used the  By the Letters Uppercase Alphabet Die-namics and cut her name out of Grapsicle and Razzleberry card stock. I used a Xyron to make the letters into stickers so I could move them around if I needed. I then cut some hearts out using the Hearts a Plenty Die-namics in the same cardstock colors, plus Sweet Tooth. They were attached with brads from Michael's, and Jute Twine from the Ribbon Carousel. 


For my flowers, I used the Large Leafy Flourish Die-namics in Mellow Moss as my base, and the Perfect Petal Trio Die-namics in my card stock colors. I added large silver brads from Michael's to the center of them, as well.

Here are the Die-namics I have used:
