DT Project 1 by Minxy: Featuring:

Hiya Snazzy Gang 
Well Christmas is almost upon us.. Are you ready for it yet?
NO.. Well here is a fun project to add to your list of last minute makes lol
For my first offering this month i've made an
Origami Christmas Wreath

 I started by cutting 2 sheets of the paper into 9x 4" squares.
I used sheets 'December 25th & Ornaments'

I've made a quick vid for you to see how I made the cubes. Enjoy.


You will notice in the vid that my paper is not double sided like the Carta Bella paper is, This is because the paper is such good quality, therefore quite thick for the small cubes I was making, so I gently peeled each square apart giving me 2 sheets from each square.

After folding 27 cubes, I set to work threading them all together with some garden wire.
I did the outer ring first, then the inner ring, joining the wire at the top in a loop to hang.
I concealed this with an Element Sticker.
I mounted the stickers on some card and cut them out to give them a bit more ridgedness, and stuck them to the wreath with cosmic shimmer glue.
I wrapped the loop with some leftover strips of paper.
I then embellished the wreath with some die-cut holly and mini poinsettia from more scraps of the Carta Bella christmas paper and Element Stickers.
I hope you have enjoyed today's offering, I will be back on Wednesday with my 2nd project for your viewing pleasure.
Till then, Stay Inky
