Valentine Curly Paper Wreath

It's Thursday,  and surprise...I have a bonus post today!  I have wanted to make one of these wreaths for months, and just never remembered to get the wreath form when I was at the craft store.  I finally made a point of getting one (even though I really wanted a heart-shaped one) and sat down to make this.

What have I been waiting for?  These are so easy to make and are such a great way to use up odds and ends of Designer Series Paper.  I had a few sheets left of some Valentine-y paper from a couple of years ago, and decided this was the perfect way to weed out my stash. 

While most of the wreaths I've seen online are 12" circles, I went with a 10" circle because I knew that I wouldn't have enough DSP for the larger one.  It was a good call, because I didn't even have enough as it was.  The giant bow is covering up the fact that I ran out of paper.   But I kind of like it, and the bonus part is that I used up that spool of giant pink ribbon. 

If you'd like to make one of these, just let me know.  I'd be happy to sit down and help you gather the supplies and walk you through it!


  1. LOVE the bow!!!! Yeah! Watch out leftover fall, christmas, halloween dsp, April has got her bone folder and is ready to curl!!

  2. Hahaha! Seriously, though, I'm going to make one for every occasion I can think of! I'm so excited to use up some of my DSP stash!
