Silver Glimmer Holiday Wreath Ornament
- (1 full sheet) Silver Glimmer (17) 2x3 pieces
- (1 +1/3 sheet) Brushed Gold (17) 2x3 pieces
- ONE 2-1/2” circle punch Whisper White
Ink: Versa Mark
Stamps: Pines and Poinsettias
Big Shot Machine and Originals Die: Leaves #2
Multipurpose Adhesive Mat Pack Crop-A-Dile Tool Heat Gun Real Red 5/8” Satin Ribbon Heat Tool Pewter Embossing Powder Snips Mini Clothespins Sanding Block Embossing Stylus Mini Glue Dots
Step by Step Instructions
- Turn on your heat tool, and allow it to warm up. Stamp the 2-1/2” Whisper White Circle with image from Pines and Poinsettias using Versa Mark Ink, cover with Pewter Embossing Powder, remove excess and heat to emboss. Set aside to use in future steps.
- Use Big Shot Machine and Leaf # 2 die to cut 17 oak leaves in Silver Glimmer and Brushed Gold Card Stock.
- Burnish the back of the Silver Glimmer Paper Leaves with a sanding block, and then attach to Brushed Gold Card Stock Leaves using Multipurpose Adhesive. Set aside to dry.
- Place each leaf (brushed gold side facing up) on top of the foam and cutting mat from the mat pack. Use the wide end of embossing stylus to score down the middle of each leaf, pressing firmly. Gently fold each leaf on scored line, towards the Silver Glimmer Paper, do not crease.
- Use the Embossing Stylus and your thumb to curl the edges of each leaf, outward from the Silver Glimmer Paper and toward the Brushed Gold Card Stock. NOTE: A pair of needle nose pliers will also work well for this step.
- Place the embossed circle on your work surface, and use as a guide to form the smallest wreath layer. As you place each leaf, they should have 2/3 on the embossed circle, so the embossed greeting is just visible.
- Once you have your leaves in place, secure with Mini Clothespins. Now, carefully lift each leaf and place Multipurpose Adhesive between the leaf layers. Keeping the Mini Clothespins in Place, set aside to dry and begin working on the next wreath layer. If you are making a single layer wreath, you can now skip to step # 9.
- Set embossed circle on your work surface, and use as a guide to form the second wreath layer. This time your leaves should have 2/3 OFF the circle. Set the embossed circle aside, and repeat step 7, using clothespins and Multipurpose Adhesive.
- Once all layers are dry, cut a 3/8” hole in the smallest wreath using a crop-a-dile tool. Set it on top of the larger wreath, and use as a guide to punch the larger wreath.
- Cut 12” of Real Red Satin Ribbon, thread through the holes in the layered wreaths and tie with an overhand knot.
- Create an approximately 2-1/2” wide Double Loop Bow using the Real Red 5/8” Satin Ribbon, and attach to the ribbon using 3-4 Mini Glue Dots.
- Place Mini Glue Dots around the outside edge of the Whisper White embossed 2-1/2” circle, and attach to the back of the larger wreath.
