12 Days of Christmas with Joans Craft World
On the eight day of Christmas…
We are at the final stretch until Christmas and today I am making a Family Snowflake Wreath. I will be using two Cricut cartridges and my Cricut Expression machine.
For the base of the wreath, garland and bows I used the Christmas Noel Cricut solutions cartridge . I cut the wreath at 6″ using the shadow function key. Then for the garland and bows I cut them out at 2 1/4″.
I then decorated the wreath with Snowflakes. I used the Winter Woodland Cricut cartridge. There are a few snowflakes on this cartridge but I really liked the one that is called Snowflk4. I used the layers function key and cut this snowflake at 2 1/2″ on white cardstock. I also cut some out at 1″ to fill in the blank spaces on the wreath.
Now for the really fun part. I want this snowflake wreath to be my family wreath, so I wrote the names of each family member on a snowflake. Then on the garland I decided to write Our Family ~ A Bunch of Flakes. I wrote this with a Zig 05 Millennium black marker.
I glued each flake onto the wreath with a Zig 2 way glue and finished it all off with some Stickles at the end of each Snowflake for that special shimmer.
I Love the way this Christmas Snowflake Wreath turned out, and I don’t mind being a flake as long as my family is with me.
Make it a Great Day and don’t forget to leave time to Craft!
