Happy National Paper Crafting Month

Every January, we celebrate National Paper crafting month as a way of acknowledging the pure joy of playing with paper! Because isn't playing with paper just the best? We scrapbook with it, we make cards with it, I make mixed media canvases with it, we decorate with it in many forms, we craft with it! So this January we are celebrating the joys of paper crafting with a beautiful "Welcome Home" home decor wreath kit.    

This kit comes with pre-cut pieces you can simply pop out and attach to the sturdy chipboard wreath base, making a welcoming decor piece for your home. The wreath kit can be yours for just $18.95, or you can get it FREE with a qualifying $60 purchase. 

The Welcome Home wreath kit is an all-inclusive project kit, meaning it includes everything you need to create a beautiful home decor piece - - all you need to add is a quilling tool or the CTMH tweezers and adhesive! Featuring paper succulents, rustic wood-grain paper and gold foil lettering, this trendy wreath is sure to make a beautiful accent anywhere in your home. The kit contains seven sheets of die-cut shapes, two sheets of stickers, one thick chipboard wreath base and instructions with simple assembly tips!

Item number #CC1210 ~ Pop on over to the Nina's Art Spot CTMH website and order yours today! 

This kit is available Jan 1, 2017 - Jan 31, 2017 while supplies last.

I'm am going to review some of the basic's of putting together your wreath. Bookmark this page now so when your's comes in you can refer back to this information. I'm sure it will be quite helpful, especially if you have never put together die cut flowers before.

Here is a list of the extra items not part of the kit that I used to put mine together.

  • Z679 Liquid Glass
  • Z726 Sponge Daubers
  • Z2835 New England Ivy Ink Pad
  • Z2850 Fern Ink Pad
  • Z1795 Quilling tool or
  • Z1382 Tweezers 
  • Z3316 Gold Shimmer Brush (NEW)

To start out with I choose to daub a bit of contrast onto the tips of my succulents. I only did the grey/green colored succulents to add a bit of variety to my final wreath.

I suggest you daub them before punching them out of the carrier sheets. It saves you time and a lot of ink waste on your fingers. 😊 I used New England Ivy for the darker succulent leaves and Fern for the lighter. 

Here is a short video demonstrating how to put the succulents together.

Here is a video demonstrating how to put the white flowers together.

Wala ~ Here is my final version. I actually spaced my succulents out further and thus did not have room for the final one. 

Chris Lothian from Christine's Creative Caper's is so creative. She took the inside piece from the wreath form and created this Home Decor piece. 

It is my hopes that this has made putting together your Welcome Home Wreath a bit easier and less hassle free.
