so i bought the kit, and last weekend, set about putting it together.
according to the directions, all you need is scissors, double-sided tape and a bone folder.
the forms are all pre-cut. . .so you just need to push out the flowers and leaves. . .
the first step is to assemble the flowers. There are 6 large and 6 small mums. . .the large mums are 8 layers and the small ones are four. Trust me when I say the instructions are easy to follow.
|Assemble your layers|
|Add a dab of adhesive in the center to keep it all together|
|Attach the layers|
|Large base ready for rolling|
|Just roll the paper around the straw, pull the straw out and squeeze gently|
once all the moms are pieced together and rolled, you can arrange them on the cardboard wreath form, attaching them with the provided foam squares.
then fold the leaves in half (I did use my bone folder for this step) and attach those with the foam squares.
now you're ready to attache the enclosed ribbon for hanging. The instructions tell you how to tie a bow in the middle and attach the two ends.
Then find a great place to hang it and wait for the oohs and ahhs!
If you have a flower paper punch or a Die Cutting system, you could easily re-create this kit at home.
What have you made this fall?
catch you soon -
