HOW TO: create your own papercut wreath
Gather all your required tools and materials so they’re close to hand.
Using the electronic die-cutting machine, cut out all of the floral and leaf elements from cardstock using the template instructions.
Shape the flowers using a curling tool as shown and fold the long leaf in half.
Fold the leaves along score lines. Spending time on folding and shaping the elements will help to add to the dimension.
Wrap the fringe die-cuts into small bundles, using hot glue to secure in the required shape.
Cut a strip of crêpe paper, then stretch, glue and wrap around to cover the foam wreath. Taking the time to cover all sections of the wreath.
Glue and arrange all of the paper pieces onto the wreath, layering the elements as desired.
The more you layer and emphasise the shapes of each die-cut the more full the wreath will appear.
