Table Centrepiece


A Spoonful Of Sugar (87) - Lots of layering
Creative Card Crew (43) - Punch It
ABC - L is for Layering

I made this decoration at our club just before Christmas and thought you might like to see it. I think it fits the above challenges as well.

First I cut two circles from card and then cut out another circle from the middle of each. I then stamped and cut out over 100 leaves (never again!!!) using a Brilliance 'Twighlight' inkpad. These were then attached with staples to one of the card rings making sure they are layered to cover all the ring. Next punch or die-cut the poinsettias from pearl card, layer, attach with foam pads and add a gem to the centres. Next I added some silver ribbon bows. Finally, stick the two circles together with foam pads so that the staples are hidden. I then glued my wreath to a plastic plate so I could move it around more easily. To finish it off I placed a small plant pot holder in the middle and put a candle inside (SAFETY FIRST: DO NOT light the candle unless it is inside a heatproof container first).


Leaf Stamp - PSX
Ribbon/Gems - Stash

Thanks for looking.
