Look What I made today

I was at my monthly crop today and had ecided I was going to make a heart shaped wreath for my bedroom wall.

Yvette on UK Scrappers had kindly pointed me in the direction of hers made as as part of the Monopoly Cyber Crop.  I managed to get a hold of the Papermania Rose Garden papers I had been looking for and decided that although I didnt have the kit I would have a go at making my own.

I made mine bigger than the cyber crop one and used for the base a heart cut out of  pizza box.    I ripped off most of the top layer of paper to reveal the corrugated card and swiped some pink paint over it with a baby wipe.   I cut out hearts and flowers using die cuts and cutting round some chipbard shapes as templates.  I fashioned a couple of roses made using paper punches and some lollipop flowers.  I layered a couple of pink felt butterflies and glued and made some antanae from twisted wire.



All in all Im quite pleased with it although I might tweak it a bit before I thread on ribbon and hang it up in my Cath Kidston inspired bedroom.
