(Edited---Oh my goodness! I wrote the title of this post a few days ago for the "meantime"--until I could come up with something creative and fun... but I forgot to come back and change it! So, it's pretty uninspired. On the first post. You won't hold it against me, right?? Wait, I mean, I meant to be abrupt and matter-of-fact 'cause that's how I roll. Yeah, that's the ticket.)
Welcome to a new blog on the bloggy scene--Two Girls Being Crafty! And that's exactly what we are! It seemed appropriate that our first post should be the first project we worked on together--the Patterned Paper Wreath Tutorial. So, without further adieu, check out our first collaboration. (If you'd like to learn more about the two girls who are being crafty, why not check out our "about us" section?)
We share a love for scrapbook paper--though neither of us are "scrapbookers". Are there any others like us out there? Sharon used scrapbook paper in an unconventional way to make this fabulous wreath for less than $5--you'll definitely want to give it a try!
Here's what you'll need:
Glue each loop to the wreath form, working your way down and around the entire form, covering the glued edges by overlapping the loops. (Picture explains this much better than I can!)
Once your wreath is covered in paper loops, add a pretty bow and hang on your door. Voila! How simple and fabulous is that? Not to mention, only a few inexpensive items needed--now that's how we craft!
After Sharon shared her awesome wreath with me, I just had to get supplies to make one of my own. I thought I'd do something with fall colors so I picked out these pieces of paper:
I used the technique and my end result was this bad boy:
Still needs a bow or something... We'll see if it happens!
My project total was the same as Sharon's--just under $5. Now that it's Christmas time (YAY!) I'll just pull the paper off of the form and use new paper on the same form. It costs about $1 for 5 sheets of paper if you buy them on sale, so you can change out your wreath with the seasons for only a buck! Now that's what I'm talkin' about!
