The Sprig Punch is so fun! I made a Wreath for my Mantel~
I love this Sprig Punch in the holiday catalog. It comes in a fun bundle, but I just wanted the punch. It is perfect for punching a couple sprigs for added elements on your card or a lot of punches, in tons of colors, for a wreath!!
I saw someone in Germany make these adorable wreaths using all sorts of color combinations and I thought, “oh, I can do that!”, but then when it came down to constructing it, it was tricky. I do like my end result although not as round as I had originally wanted.
My wreath is adhered to a piece of thick cardboard, covered with whisper white cardstock, measuring 7″ x 7″.
I started by simply punching out sprig pieces in Garden Green, Old Olive and Pear Pizzazz. I then purchased a buffalo check ribbon from an online distributor, to finish it up!
To build my wreath I started with all three of my sprig colors, a piece of thin ribbon and some tear-n-tape.
I cut my thin ribbon about 9″ long and placed tear-n-tape across one side of it and remove the backing. Then I literally just took one sprig at a time and lined them up one following the other.
The ribbon helps to give the wreath shape. It took me about ten minutes to finish it to my liking. I then tear n taped it to my backing.
I didn’t love it at first. It was trick to get “perfect” and I fussed with it. But when I was all said and done and I had it on the mantel, I liked it. A lot!
