Eileen Hull and DCWV - Winter Wonderland

This month Eileen Hull's Inspiration Team are working with some beautiful papers from DCWV (Die Cuts With a View) together with Eileen Hull's dies.


For my first project this month, I created a small wreath using some of the lovely papers from the DCWV Cranberry Christmas paper pack.
This was a very easy project, I took a piece of corrugated card, used a couple of plates to draw circles and cut out the wreath shape.  I cut one sheet of the foiled paper into strips and wrapped them around the wreath shape, gluing each strip in place.
To create the poinsettias I cut the large leaf shape from Eileen Hull's Spring Leaves die (Sizzix 661111), cutting three for each layer.  The paper is also from the DCWV Cranberry Christmas paper pack.  The first layer was added to a circle.  I cut some of the leaf bases for the second layer and a little more for the third layer as you can see below.  Once the layers were glued together I shaped the petals to give the poinsettia a more realistic look.  I added a large glitter covered pearl to the centre.
The beautiful bow and snowflake are from the DIY Project Stack - Gift Decor  paper pack by DCWV, another beautiful Holiday paper stack.
To create the hanger, I used some crimson coloured vintage seam binding and twisted it using Eileen Hull's Twist & Style tool.

So there we have it, a quick and easy project using one die and two sheets of paper.

To see more projects created by my talented teamies please go to Eileen's blog HERE.  The team will be sharing projects each week during November.

Thanks for your visit, I really appreciate it.  See you soon!  Anne xx

  10. Now I would never see corrugated paper and think "make a wreath". What a sturdy base it made, however, for this gorgeously striped paper. You really have placed the wraps so smoothly, and of course the gorgeous red blaze of the poinsettia looks just stunning with the striping of the wreath. Clever of you and another one of your wonderful projects! TFS & Hugs
