Since it's officially December ...

... thought I'd share this paper poinsettia wreath I created using the gorgeous new Christmas Sleigh Collection from GCD Studios.


When I was asked to create a wreath as one of my design team assignments I was super excited ... and then I panicked!  LOL  I really wanted to create the wreath ENTIRELY from paper but did not want to labor over cutting out all those pieces.  All I can say is thank goodness for my Cricut Expression - whew!  After much deliberating I finally decided to have the wreath consist entirely of poinsettia flowers and was able to use a shape on the Accent Essentials cartridge to piece the flower together.



There was still a lot of work involved - each flower has two layers and then punched circles in the middle with gems or buttons hot glued to it - but I absolutely LOVE how it turned out! 

For complete step by step instructions on how to create this wreath on your own head on over to the GCD Studios blog for all the details!
