Spring Wreath

Hi Everyone, I started making this cute wreath a few weeks ago and didn't realize how long the dang thing would take... I love how it looks but boy was it a pain. I found the idea ==>HERE<== and thought I would try it out but I have to warn you it took me about 4 hours total to get all the scalloped circles on. I used a 2 inch punch from Stampin Up! and leaving brown paper bags folded up we punched out a bunch of circles and by a bunch I mean that it took nearly 30 bags for this project. Then using an un-sharpened pencil you fold the circle over the pencil, add a dab of hot glue and press it to the foam until you have all the spots covered. Then I used the Storybook cartridge and cut my butterflies at 1-1/2, 2, and 2-1/2. For that white paper I didn't have a book I wanted to tear and I wanted it to be more sturdy then the called for pages so I got on my computer and looked up the definition for spring and then copy and pasted that into my word processor and then printed it. I also inked the edges, if you click on the photo you can hopefully enlarge it. Thanks for stopping by today!

I stumbled across this a few months ago and filed it away as something I would love to try! So, I started this week...I think my "flowers" are a lot tighter than yours, so far I have punched just over 1600 and I still have a ways to go. LOL, it looks gorgeus and I can't wait to be finished and get to the embellishing party! Thanks for the inspiration.
