Candy Wrapper Advent Calendar # 8

A mini Christmas wreath today. This is a little fiddly, but doesn't take long to make.

Punch out a 1 1/4" circle from a piece of Garden Green, leaving some space around it.

Punch around the circular hole with the Scalloped Circle punch.

Using the pricking mat from the Mat Pack, shape the scallops with an embossing stylus by embossing in small circles on each scallop.

Punch out 14 mini flowers - here I've used the flower punch from the Bitty Shapes Punch Pack. Emboss each petal of the flower.

Then turn the flower over and emboss in the centre.

Place a small spot of glue to one side of a scallop, and place a flower on it, so that the flower is tilted on to one side.

Repeat with all of the flowers until the ring is filled.

Punch out 20 x 1/8" circles. I used the retired 1/8" hand held punch from SU. Place a small blob of glue in the centre, and then place three circles on top as shown in the photo.

Place a good blob of glue on the wreath as in the photo, and gently place a group of berries on top. Don't press down on the berries, in order to avoid the glue squelching out from underneath!

Finally use a glue dot to fix on a small bow. Here I have used the 1/8" Real Red taffeta ribbon.
