Flower Shoppe Wreath!

Good Morning! This is Jen from 3 Cats and a Bug.

This week at SSD's the 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 Floral 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.
