Christmas 10-inch Wreath - Lollies

Whew, this was a great project but you'll really need to make time to make this project. Time to put things together, time to choose the color motif and designs to use in your wreath and time to put them together:)

For a 10" wreath, I used the cardboard base from the Glitter papers that came in. It's thick enough to make the base of the wreath. The tricky part is to get a disc out from it. I used my Circle Scissor Plus #112530, then set the dial to 6". This will cut the inner part of the wreath. TIP: If you are not able to cut the cardboard all through out with the Circle Scissor Plus blade, you may need to use a Box Cutter.

Measure 2 inches from the cut edge all around the circle to make a guide for the outer part of the wreath. Cut with your box cutter and use your Designer Sanding Block #124304 to smooth out the edges. Have fun making it:)
TIP: Good company and friends can help out. What a lovely way to spend time with love ones.

In the meantime, to make the lollies, there are many videos out there to learn from :) I'll let you know if I make my own tutorial. :)
