Fall Wreath

So today I have a little sneak peek. If you haven't received your Holiday Mini Catalog, you will be soon. It is loaded with awesome products. Being a demonstrator has some perks, like being able to see these items sooner than the rest of the public and being able to order a month earlier.

Since I didn't have to work yesterday I thought I would play with my stuff but then remembered I needed to prepare for my Stamp Club this Thursday. So I worked on those items while taking care of my little man. Before I knew it, it was evening and time for dinner. So finally after dinner I started working on a project using my mini catalog items.

One of the most exciting items was the Simply Scored Scoring Tool. I have been wanting a scoring tool for a while but never would put out the money for it. I kept waiting to see if SU! would come out with one of their own. Well the time has finally come. I can't show it to you just yet but I am showing you a project that I used my scoring tool on. I have seen these accordion flowers/rosettes for quite some time but never tried them before. I watched a YouTube video first just to make sure I knew what I was doing. I cut strips of paper in 1 inches and 1 1/2 inched and scored with my Simply Scored. It went rather fast. I made about 17 or 18 of these flowers but only used 14 of them. I wasn't to sure how many I would use.

I used both regular card stock and some DSP that is also from the Holiday Mini called Spice Cake. I love this paper. I am a lover of fall so this line is right up my alley. After all my flowers were made, I tied the ribbon on the top of the 8 inch foam wreath. Then I began hot gluing all the rosettes on. I love the end result and I can't wait to try another wreath.

I am thinking about making this into a class. Let me know what you think.
