Ribbon Wreath

Hi all.  I am posting these cards to show what I am making for Christmas cards this year.  They 
are called Ribbon Wreaths.  I got inspired to make these wreaths when I saw a card online that 
had a perfectly plain white wreath.  I'm not even sure what it was made out of.  But, I thought it would be really nice to wrap ribbon on it and so I actually made my first one as a 4th of July birthday card.  You can see that one in my previous post.  The technique is really quite simple and after you make the wreath, you can decorate it with ribbon, bows, rhinestones, punches, etc.  One of my examples is for a winter card that I added snowflakes that were actually waste from a border punch.  You can use any kind of background (stamped, designer paper, handmade background or even embossed).  The actual wreath is made by using 2 circle die cuts of different sizes.  

This card is being entered in the following challenge:

I hope you will try my technique.

Till next time...


  1. I love learning new techniques like this :) Very nice job on all of them Barb! I actually remembering doing this a few years back... let me see if I can find it. Here's the Link to my Post - very pretty and fun. I've got a huge shopping bag full of ribbons! Your recipients will enjoy these for sure. :) Thanks for sharing! xx
