Paper Wreath

I saw these on line whilst searching for the origami Christmas tree's & thought that I would try them out. 

Christmas Wreath

1. Cut 8 sheets of rectangle paper the same size where the length is double the width. The sheet size will depend on how large you want the wreath to be ( the wreaths in the photo use 4cm  x 8cm  sheets). Choose your favorite paper or mix and match patterned and solid styles.
2. Fold each sheet of paper down the center lengthwise (use a bone folder to make your folds nice and crisp). If using a patterned paper, make sure the pattern is showing when folded.
3. With the folded paper horizontal and the open edge at the top, fold down the corners (bring the top two corners down to meet the bottom edge of the paper, forming 45 degree angles).
4. Then fold the paper in half widthwise, keeping the angled flaps inside. Bring the points flush together. This is the final shape for each individual piece (3 straight sides, 1 angled side).
5. Repeat these steps for all 8 pieces of paper.
6. Take one of the pieces and hold the points together – look inside the shortest edge of the shape to find two pockets formed by the angled edges of the paper. Insert the points of a second piece into the two pockets of the first piece – push the second piece into the first until the points touch the bottom of the pocket.
7. Take a third piece and repeat step 6 using the pockets of the second piece…and so on. You will see your wreath take form as you build and repeat.
8. On the eighth and final piece the tips of the first piece will insert into its pockets, completing the circle. The center of your wreath should form an octagon shape.
9. Make adjustments to your pieces to even out the shape. For added strength, use small pieces of double stick tape inserted within the pockets to hold pieces firmly in place.
10. To hang your wreath, add ribbon by looping through the center of the wreath, or use a 1/8″ hole punch through one of the points then thread ribbon through.

The papers, ribbon & punch are from Stampin' up & are available to purchase through me as an Independent Creative coach

Crafts are here

Crafts are here, crafts are there,

My craft supplies are everywhere.

I really should clean this mess,

but I like it I confess.

Floor is littered, chairs are piled,

Kitchen's looking pretty wild.

On the table, counter too,

Seems that any place will do.

Hall is stacked with cartons high,

filled with things folks like to buy.

Garage is full, but so far....

there's still room to park the car.

I never have an idle day,

New ideas come my way.

Don't know yet what I'll create,

but my imagination's great.

My family smiles, they don't complain,

although at times I am a pain.

but when all is said and done,

I really am a crafty one!
