No Sew Fabric Wreaths for Valentine’s Day

I’m back! I’m back!  You may have been thinking I had extended my Christmas vacation, but you were wrong 😀 I’ve been busy this past month prepping some new projects and polishing new ideas for My Paper Moose. And I’ve also prepared some fun and exciting projects to get you ready for Valentine’s Day! So let’s get to it!

I’m excited to share today’s projects with you. I had been brainstorming this project since before Christmas, and it was so exciting to bring it to life! You see, I absolutely love Stampin’ Up!’s Designer Fabrics. But a seamstress I most certainly am not. Sewing machines scare me and I can barely manage to do a running stitch by hand. But I wanted to utilize those gorgeous Designer Fabrics in some way without the need to sew. So I thought, why not make some wreaths? And I did!

I fell in love with the More Amore Designer Fabric in the new Spring Catalog, so I decided to create some Valentine’s Day wreaths. The first one I made was this smaller one. This size wreath would be great to make in multiples and hang in windows or on cabinets. I only made one, so I decided to try framing it instead.

Now, there was a tiny bit of sewing involved on this wreath. But only for creating the fabric yo-yo flowers, and all that’s required to create those is a running stitch. So even the most novice of sewers out there could handle that! For a tutorial on creating a fabric yo-yo flower, check out MY TUTORIAL. For the center of the flowers, I used a designer button, a glimmer brad, and a Designer Builder Brad from the Spring Catalog.

It took me a while to come up with a design I was happy with (for those of you who follow me on Facebook, THIS was the project that kept stumping me for days!). But I’m happy with the final result. I used some More Amore Specialty Designer Series Paper to cover the photo mat in the frame and complement the wreath. It’s the perfect piece to decorate your mantel for Valentine’s Day or perhaps a dessert table at a Valentine’s Day party.

After making that small wreath, I still had plenty of Designer Fabric left over. So I decided to make a little bit larger of a wreath, and this time I made sure this one involved absolutely no sewing of any kind!

For this wreath, I utilized more of the products from the More Amore Product Suite in the Spring Catalog. I used the Hearts A Flutter Framelits Dies to create a cute little banner to go across the wreath. I love the different shapes you get with that die set. They are absolutely perfect for creating fun banners like this! I just die cut the shapes from some sheets of More Amore DSP and Pool Party card stock for an instant banner in less than two minutes! The heart outline is from the Hearts A Flutter stamp set and the “love” sentiment is from the Tiny Tags set.

Now, the flowers are my absolute favorite thing about this wreath. And like I said before, there was absolutely no sewing involved! The large fabric flower was created using a strip of More Amore fabric and a Jumbo Sticky Round. The center of the flower is a Designer Builder Brad.

I also used a builder brad for the center of that Primrose Petal flower. I attached an In Color Dahlia to the center of that builder brad for a little variety. The flower itself, along with the smaller white flower, were made using the new Creped Filter Paper from the Spring Catalog. I dyed the larger flower using Primrose Petal ink.

I hope you enjoyed this first project for the new year! And stay tuned as I’ve got plenty more projects to share in the coming days!

Rosette Wreath Gift Tags

Gifts are a big part of Christmas. But the gifts we give aren’t always hand made. Still, there are ways to throw a little hand made touch onto your Christmas gifts…with the wrapping!

The quickest and easiest way to add a hand made element to your gift wrap is by adding on a nice gift tag you made yourself. I made these gift tags using the same type of rosette wreaths I used on these Christmas cards from my last post.

Tags are easy to make with the Extra Large Tag Punch. Just punch out a tag, embellish, and add some string!

I love how great these tags turned out. I kept it simple by just adding the wreath onto the punched tag. No stamps. No extra bling. Just fun!

Well, folks, Christmas is just around the corner and I still have TONS to do! But I do have a few more things left in store for the blog this month!

Door Decor No More

Christmas Wreaths. I LOVE Christmas Wreaths! They are so beautiful and they come in so many different styles now. I love seeing the different wreaths people hang on their doors. I’ve seen some made out of wrapped yarn. I’ve seen the traditional evergreen wreaths. But my absolute favorites are the wreaths that are just covered in ornaments. That’s the kind of wreath I’m going to make one day for the front door of the Moose home.

But who’s to say that wreaths are only for your front door? I decided to make some miniature wreaths and use them for these adorable Christmas cards!

I made these mini Christmas wreaths using some more of my old DSP stash. I cut the DSP into strips and created rosettes out of them. Then I embellished each wreath with some Cherry Cobbler Baker’s Twine and a Mini Jingle Bell.

The Merry Christmas sentiment from the Four the Holidays stamp set was the final touch for these super clean and simple Christmas cards.

These are pretty quick and easy to make. So if you’re looking for a card design to make in multiples to send out this holiday season, try creating your own Christmas wreath cards. It’s a way to keep your cards hand made without killing your hands!

Coming Up: Do you think you could make tags out of these little wreaths? I do!

Until next time…
