Flower Frenzy and Spiral flower die Fall Wreath

Happy Friday, Everyone!
I have a project to share with you today that I am super excited about!  I've been wanting to experiment with making burlap flowers for a while, and decided I wanted to do a fall wreath class, so I jumped in with both feet and pretty much have a comprehensive collection of all the burlap "flavors" that Joanne's carries! :)

I had so much fun putting this together -- totally satisfied my need for a "crafty fix" -- at least for today. :)

I used the SU Spiral Flower Bigz die for the rosettes and the Flower Frenzy die for the bigger die cut flower.  The rolled looking flowers, were made by rolling up the SU burlap ribbon into a flower.  For the larger two-tone flowers you see, I put two of the spiral die cuts together -- staggering the scallops slightly so they weren't directly on top of each other.  Those little wooden leaves you see in one of the photos, are the new Autumn Wood Elements that will be available in the Holiday catalog coming out on August 28th.  Also used in this project, are Basic Pearls, Antique brads, and a whole lot of hot glue.

Be inspired to get your crafty on this week! OR, if you live near me, come to my class on Sept 5th or 7th!
