New Wreath

Out with the old, in with the new.

At least for a while.
 Remember when I did the paper wreath with the old herb dictionary?

That wreath has been up until this past week.

 I finished a cute little Valentine wreath last week.

It was fun, easy and didn't take long to make.
I started with a heart-shaped grapevine wreath from Michael's.
Don't have a Michael's? Any craft or garden center should have one.

Have a glue gun and glue sticks on hand.
Add some ribbon that is at least 1 1/2 inches wide.
I used Stampin' Up ribbon in striped red.

Now here's what I did.
I used my Big Shot from Stampin' Up
and their dies for lollies.

The pleated round flower thingies are called "lollies." 
Who knew?
Then more Big Shot Sizzix dies for the nested hearts.

That was it.
Then hot glued it all together.

Here's a detail picture.

I used Valentine themed paper from last year,  
and glitter paper
 and then stamped a cupid on white card stock for the last heart.
Cute, eh?

Happy Valentines Day
to you and yours!

Hop over and see all the creative Valentines.
