May Creative Challenge from MFT ~ Wreaths

Hi there!  It's May Creative Challenge time for My Favorite Things and I can't wait for you to see my project.  But first, here are some specifics about this month's challenge:

"Our Design Team Creative Challenge is a monthly feature, where we challenge our design team to explore their creative side using a specific theme, product or technique. This month, we're creating wreaths. Be sure to check the MFT Blog for a list of all the designers who have put their MFT stamps and/or Die-namics dies to work to create a wreath for you today!"

Okay, so this was truly a CHALLENGE for me as I rarely stray from cardmaking or scrapbooking when faced with creative time.  However, once I got started on my wreath I had a blast, thanks to my Die-namics dies!  And my wreath will go oh so perfectly in my "hopefully sometime soon" bedroom/craft area makeover!

I started with a 10 inch foam wreath, wrapped it with some burlap strips (actually, this was the hardest part for me) and then got to work cutting, rolling and hot glueing all my flowers to the wreath.

The Die-namics I used on my wreath are Botanical Beauty, Large Royal Rose, Mini Royal Roses, Royal Leaves, Leafy Flourish and Large Leafy Flourish.  All the patterned papers are Authentique Loyal.










Here are the Die-namics I used:









Thanks for stopping by!
