Wreaths!

You may remember this wreath from this post.

Since then I've gone a little wreath crazy.  I've got wreaths and ideas for wreaths coming out my ears!
Here are a few I just finished (and will be up for sale at market this weekend!)

This one features folded book pages, coiled paper roses with faux pearls, and a pennant sign that means "welcome" in french.  I used the CTMH alphabet stamp set "Party Pennants" that you can order here from my friend and consultant Christine.  The base for this wreath is 8".





This wreath is also an 8" one, and I just used crumpled and twisted book pages.




This one is probably my favorite - and Samantha insists that I can't possibly sell it (so I think it is her favorite too).  It is over 18" across and is made from rolled book pages.  The stamp is from the You and Me collection and can be found here.  I also used burlap and vintage ruffle for the center, and finished it with faux pearls.




Betcha can't guess what this wreath is made out of!  Would you believe Coffee Filters!?!?!  I can see you all running to costco now for the industrial sized pack.  Hehe.  Yes indeed.  I used almost 200 filters for this 12" wreath base.  It measures closer to 15" now.  I used the pennant alphabet again, and some chipboard letters drowned in black glitter.  The birds are punched from the SU! bird punch.



I hope you enjoyed seeing all my wreaths!  Back to work I go...
