Floral wreath with Tattered Florals by Tim Holtz

Hello everybody, it's May 1st so it's time for a new challenge over at Country View Challenges. And this time it was my turn to be the hostess of this month. 

There's an English proverb which says: "April showers bring May flowers" so it's time for the flowers and for the floral creations - Flower Power :-)

As for the first inspirational project, I would like to show you not just one but two floral wreaths. With these wreaths I wanted to show you how easy to cut felts with Sizzix dies.

For making this you need a styrofoam wreath and some sisal cord. 

With hot glue fix the end of the cord to the back of the wreath then wrap your cord tight around the wreath. When you finished cut off the cord and fix it with hot glue to the back.

For the flowers I used two Sizzix dies, a Bigz and a Thinlits set.

For assembling the tattered flowers I used 4 cut-outs and a brad with long fastener.

With a craft tool, a picking tool (or a thick needle) pierce a hole in the middle of the flowers so you can easily add your brad. 

I fixed the flowers and the leaves with hot glue.

I hope you like it! And if you create something with flowers, please don't hesitate to join our challenge where you can win a £20 voucher!
