Fall Wreath and Floral Shoppe

Good Morning!

This week at SSD's the Design Team challenge is to create any sort of wreath and add of course some cricut cartridge in the mix. I thought it was a perfect time to use my Flower Shoppe cartridge and it was the only one I used.

I started out with the leaf cut @ 4 and inked around the sides.

Next I picked out some patterned paper that I liked and started cutting flowers in all shapes and sizes. Making flowers has not been my strong suit, so I cut out a lot of them to mix them up and see what worked. (I have to admit, I'm happy with the results... finally! lol)

I also cut about a dozen of the swirled ones at 3.5.

And put together....

This one I cut @ 4.

And put together (Sassy approved! LOL)

I loved the scalloped ones, cut @ 3.5

This one was cut @ 4, 2.5 and 3 for the scalloped.

This one was cut @ 5, 4.5, 3, 2.5 and 4 for the sunflower center with stickles added.

The finished flowers!

I used a 14in wreath from Hobby Lobby and covered it in orange ribbon, not the yellow pictured.

I also bought a spray from Hobby Lobby that cut apart and added to my wreath.

I used my glue gun and and put it all together. I'm rather pleased with how it turned out.

The inside of the wreath I covered in the leaves that I cut @ 4.

Thanks for looking!
