Autumn Leaves

Hello everyone! Loes here today to show you how to make a beautiful Autumn wreath with the "Seasons: Autumn" Collection!

First you need leaves... there are so many punches and dies out there to use for leaves, but I used the Sizzix Movers and Shapers mini tattered leaves.

You will also need a Styrofoam wreath form. 
Before you glue the leaves on the Styrofoam, paint it all in a brown color to match the papers. 

Die cut several leaves from the different patterned papers. I used the 6x6 bundle as well as the 12 x 12  patterned papers.

To add a little dimension to the leaves, use an embossing stylus and a foam pad underneath to kind of curl the leaves up.

Glue the leaves to the Styrofoam with a quick dry adhesive. 

For the bow,  I used this pattern, it's very easy to create in any size you want!



I also created a layout with the same technique. Instead of putting the leaves on Styrofoam, I used a piece of cardstock.
The card stock was a white to start... I took some Memento inks and made it a color to match the autumn papers.

Thanks for joining me today! I hope I was able to inspire you with these fun Autumn projects!

  5. Beautiful! Where did you get the embossing stylus from? I've been looking for a large one and haven't had any luck.
