This stunning wreath was created using my Stampin Up Designer Series Paper scraps. I made the bow from some poinsettia 1 1/2″ ribbon I purchased at my local craft store and the 3d poinsettia flower to add that special decorative element to the project. I really enjoyed making this wreath, it was so relaxing and fun to watch it come together as I added the paper curls to the Styrofoam wreath form. It took me about 2 hours while I was resting one evening after dinner watching TV. I hope you give it a try.
