Stampin' Up Summer Mini Blog Hop

Welcome to my blog, you have probably hopped over from Frankiesue's.  I have been very busy with the simply scored tool which I love, this is my creation I have chosen to show you. It's a wreath made with the gorgeous twitterpated papers, fabric and pleated ribbon. The wreath is made of 2 backing cards from DSP packs, I drew around a dinner plate and a tea plate and cut out then wrapped it with some wadding, don't worry, if we make this in class I will get some polysterene wreaths!  I then wrapped some strips of twitterpated fabric around. I think the fabric was about 1 1/2" wide and I sewed the strips together for easiness.

The rosettes are so easy to make using the simply scored tool. I used strips of 12" long  twitterpated DSP, the strips were 1", 1 1/4", 1 1/2" and one 2" wide. I scored them every 1/4". Cut how much of each paper you want to use, (for e.g. 6") and score the whole piece and then cut it into strips. Remember the width of the finished rosette will be twice the width of the strip so a 2" rosette is made from a 1" wide strip. For the large rosette I used two 2" strips stuck together. There are a lot of tutorials on how to make the rosettes or lollies as the US Demo's call them, here is one.

I have used a variety of things to decorate the top of the rosettes. Flowers made using the boho blossom punch and pearls and the twitterpated buttons. The ribbon flowers are made using the new pleated satin ribbon which I love! They are so easy to make, punch a circle out of card stock and cover it with sticky strip, then starting from the outside wrap your ribbon round finishing in the center.

I hope you enjoyed your little stop over, the next hop is over to Angela who I know will have something fantstic to show you.  Thank you for looking.
