Paper “Roll-Up” Valentine Wreath Tutorial

Hello!
I am so thrilled to be here at TT&J today  sharing my cute paper roll-up Valentine wreath with you!

My name is Aniko and I am a blogger at Place Of My Taste.
It’s only mid January, but you know how time flies, right?
I just put away all my Christmas decorations and I started working on Valentine  projects.
With every holiday the first project I usually make is a wreath.

This pretty, lovely Valentine wreath was born in a rainy, cold Saturday afternoon while sipping a cup of coffee, watching my kids crafting next to me…Oh, I Love that!
So this is what you will need to make this lovely looking wreath:
-scrapbook paper { pink, red combination }

-hot glue gun or glue { started with glue but was faster and better with the gun:-)}

-cardboard

-scissors

-ribbon to hang the wreath

First, I draw a big heart shape on my card board… no fancy stuff here…
The shape wasn’t perfect, but that totally wouldn’t matter,since no one will see the wreath base.
 I cut the the shape out with my scissors.

Next I  cut thin stripes of my pretty pink and red scrapbook papers.

To help roll up the paper stripes, I used a pencil. It was much easier to roll the stripes with it.

Once I rolled up lots of scrapbook stripes, I cut them to small pieces.
I made lots of them.
It really didn’t take long, it was quite fast and a fun project.

I heated up my hot glue gun and started gluing my scrapbook roll ups on my heart-shaped board.

As you see, the  roll ups are not perfect, don’t have the same length, but I think it is actually makes the wreath look more unique.

To hang the wreath, I used a piece of ribbon. It was glued to the back of the card board.

The red heart in the middle is an ornament that I used for embellishment.

Gorgeous! Isn’t it?

 

Looks absolutely lovely with my green door!
