Floral Garland

Good Morning fellow crafters! Not such a bright day here where I live – hope you’re having some sunshine wherever you are!

So today lets add a bit of sunshine into our lives with a beautiful floral garland using Craftworks goodies!

Firstly to make the flowers – craftwork flowers are a joy to work with as they are all die cut and easy to assemble. The hard bit is trying to decide which to use and how many shapes you can create by mixing and matching! Here’s some examples of different combinations you can make.

Using the ready made cardboard ring from Craftworks or alternatively you could create your own using a circle cutter ( ideally the ring needs to be about 5 – 6 ” in diameter and 1/2″ wide, I tread ribbon through punched holes – organza is nice as it keeps the overall look very “soft and elegant”.

Next add the flowers in whatever arrangement you want. I usually add a few die cut leafs or scrolls to add the overall effect. Here’s a picture of a  finished floral Floral Garland. They make super gifts for brides at weddings if done all in white too !

Happy Crafting !
