Happy Holidays! - Wreath Tutorial

This wreath is made entirely from the fern Martha Stewart punch!! I love this idea - it was really pretty easy.

The finished card size is 4x4.

Supplies: Stamps- Hero Arts; Paper- Really Red, Whisper White, Old Olive, Always Artichoke; Ink- Staz-on, Old Olive; Misc-CB Snowflake Embossing Folder, Bling, Stickles, Circle Cutter, Ribbon - SU, Word Window Punch - McGill, Fern Punch - MS, sponges.

See below for Tutorial on making your own! :)

Fern Wreath Tutorial:

Supplies you will need: Circle cutter, Fern Punch - Martha Stewart, 2 colors cardstock (I used Olive and Artichoke), Quick Dry Glue with fine tip - I use Scotch., bling, stickles. Using the two different cardstocks, punch several of the ferns from each paper - I used more of the Olive than I did Artichoke.

First, cut a thin ring using a circle cutter. The end result should look like the next picture.


Glue the 'stick end' of the fern punch down leaving the rest of the branch to 'pop' up.

Continue gluing pieces around your cirle and then embellish with ribbon, bling, and stickles or whatever you like!
