Welcome to the Grand Vacation Achievers Blog Hop for November! This month our theme is Seeing 3D. We are sure that you will find incredible inspiration from the projects that are shared!  You may just be starting the blog hop here or you may have come from the person previous to me in the list. If you get off track at any time, the full lineup below will help you move along from blog to blog so you won't miss out on any of the amazing projects.  At the moment you are visiting me, Georgia Giguere! 
 
It seems that this is the season for plenty of 3D projects for me!  I had a difficult time narrowing down which one to share!  I finally landed on sharing how I'm getting another season from the burlap wreath I shared last month.  My front door is ready . . . bring on Christmas!

Just in case you missed the quick video last month, I've uploaded it again for you.

 Here's a closer look at the new accent I created for my wreath.

My banner is a 2" x 7" piece of Shimmery White cardstock.  I punched the ends with the Banner Triple Punch.  After stamping, I adhered it to a scrap of Kraft Cardstock.

Next I built my poinsettias using the Festive Flower Builder Punch.   Here's a helpful video tutorial for making the poinsettias.

You may find this tip helpful for adding the fold to each of the petals.  I simply pressed the center of each one over my bone folder with my thumb.   This was much easier than trying to fold each one in half.

I added Dimensionals between each layer to give my flowers a bit more "pop".  The In Color Blossoms worked awesome for the centers of my flowers because they added a bit more dimension as well.

I looped the Cherry Cobbler Ribbon into the size bow I wanted and simply twisted wire around the center.  I used my hot glue gun to attach it to the back of my accent piece.  The Christmas accent is wired to my wreath so I can easily remove it when I'm ready to decorate my wreath for the next season!

  1. Beautiful wreath! I love the accent piece you created, and especially love how the striped ribbon is placed! Thanks for the tip on using the bone folder to fold the petals – I have been scoring each one, and your way looks much better!
