Good morning! I hope you are enjoying your week, can't believe it's Wednesday already! This week is busy which equals "fllllyyy by" :) But next week is my little guy's {Spring Break} so I kinda don't mind this week moving fast. Can't wait to have him home with me for 9 days and not having to share him. You kinda miss that once they are in school all day! PLUS my baby was registered for Kindergarten yesterday which turns me even more into a Mama Bear who wants to keep her cubs close. Where does time go??! Crazy, crazy!

I have a fun tutorial for you today! This gorgeous birdcage was on display in our CHA booth and it was a huge hit! Wouldn't it be gorgeous as a table centerpiece for spring?? This tutorial is for the wrapped roses which don't need a template and don't need to be cut out perfect!! Love that, right??

Note: In this photo, we used the DCWV Home product Domestic Bliss Decorative Trim in Vintage Wall Roses. You can pick this up at your local Jo-Anns. Instead of using paper, we took two pieces of the contact paper, removed the adhesive and put it back to back and then cut it out. But if you don't have the Decorative Trim, you can definitely use any of your stacks to make this rose with paper. It works just the same! 



Wrapped Roses

Supplies & Tools

·      DCWV 12”X12” STACK
·      6” CIRCLE TEMPLATE
·      1 1/2" CIRCLE PUNCH
·      PAPER CRAFTING ADHESIVE (*RECOMMEND HOT GLUE)
·      SCISSORS
·      PENCIL

Directions

1.    SELECT A PRINT FROM THE DCWV BLACK CURRANT STACK.  TURN THIS OVER TO THE WHITE SIDE AND TRACE A 6” CIRCLE ON THE BACK.  CUT OUT. 
2.    CUT A SPIRAL PATTERN IN YOUR CIRCLE UNTIL YOU REACH THE MIDDLE. PUNCH OUT A 1 1/2" CIRCLE WITH THE PUNCH.
3.    USING THE IMAGE AS A REFERENCE, BEGIN CREATING YOUR FLOWER BY TAKING THE MIDDLE SECTION AND WRAPPING THE PAPER AROUND ITSELF.  CONTINUE WRAPPING UNTIL YOU REACH THE END.  MANIPULATE THE FLOWER (WRAPPING TIGHTER VS. WRAPPING LOOSER) UNTIL YOU REACH YOUR DESIRED LOOK.  ADHERE YOUR FLOWER TO THE CIRCLE PUNCH.
4.    REPEAT AS NEEDED.

Have a wonderful Wednesday!! Be back here tomorrow :)

  17. These are gorgeous Erin! I have seen these flowers but have never tried them - definitely going to pull out several of my DCWV stacks and have a go at them :) Once your kids hit middle school and high school, you might not be so excited to have them home for 9 days... just sayin'. See you Saturday at the EXPO - so excited!
