Design Challenge: Matching Gift and Tag

Hello everyone,

This months our design Challenge was to prepare a gift with a matching Tag. Keeping the Spirit in the holiday mood, I was inspired to create a Wreath using some of the  Els Van Burgt Studio Collection dies in an unconventional and creative way.

Let’s get started:
1. Die cut 8 Card Stand/Easel on dark green cardstock.
2. Die cut 2 circles in green cardstock from Accordion Circle Card. Apply double side of adhesive in one of the circles.

3. Using the score board cut 8 stip of ¼ x 1 on dark green cardstock and double side tape.


4. Cut one big circle by hand of 5 inches ratio. (Do not need to be perfect)
5. Die cut Merry Christmas on red SS and double side tape.
6. Die cut 2 berry branches on red cardstock.
7. Die cut some sprig for decoration. (Use the springs from Die Candle 919)

Assembling our wreath:
8. Stick the 2 green circle together.
9. Place the 8 easel pieces on the middle of the circle with silicone glue let it dry. (See picture)

10. Start connecting the easel legs with the strips with tape. (See picture)

11. Decorate the border of big circle with the branches, sprigs and red Glitter Dots.

12.-Place the Merry Christmas In the Center of the Circle.
13. Using silicone glue place the big circle decorated on top of our Wreath built with the Easels.

14.- To Finalize our project, using silicone glue  attach a piece of Gold Ribbon on the back of the Wreath.


To match this Wreath I created a tag using an embossing technique and Stamps from Petroschi Designs by BiancaTAG

I hope you find inspiration in my project, see you next time.
