Congratulations - It's Party Time!..........

Hi Everybody welcome back for another Create a Wreath post today, hope you are enjoying hopping across the pond to see what we have made too!

Hope you are all keeping well and enjoying life.  Today I am using two lovely wreath kits but only one is going to hang on the wall!  

My first Create a Wreat kit is Congratulations!

I am using this wreath to decorate a plain brown paper sandwich bag and create a gift bag for a special wedding gift or anniversary gift.

1 brown paper gift bag
Ribbon from kit
Pearls from my craft room stash
Candi fix
Wreath: Congratulations 
Candi: Chantilly olive and icing sugar
Liquid Pearls: opal white 

I made up the wreath by twirling, bending and shaping all the flowers before layering up into individual flowers and popped a pearl in the centre of each before placing on wreath ring, also placed ribbons on ring.  I covered the bag handles with ribbon to match.  Along the top of the bag I used heavy duty double sided tape to pleat some organza ribbon straight onto the bag and placed a row of Candi in cream (from Chantilly Olive collection) and icing sugar Candi.  I used liquid pearls in  opal white to decorate all around the bag and also decorated some of the petals with tiny pearl drops.  When everything was dry I attached the wreath to the front of the bag and added a couple of decorative pins through the bow.  After the event the wreath can be removed from the bag as a keep-sake.  Hope you like and will start creating with your wreath kits.......

My second Create a Wreath kit is Party Time!

Wreath: party time
Ribbon from kit
Pearls from my own stash

Hope you are inspired to get working on some wreath kits very soon and using them to create your own amazing projects..............

Beautiful projects. The bag is lovely - the wreath stands out well against the kraft colour of the bag. The party wreat is just so lovely and cheerful.

Such a beautifully decorated bag Mars.I like the Candi rows along the top edge with the ruffled ribbon and all the cute pearl drops around the edges and on the tips of the ribbon. A real work of art and very inspirational.
These kits are so beautifully colour coordinated.
