Christmas Wreath: Xyron Design Partnership with Graphic 45 & Petaloo

Hi there,

We are still Blog Hopping with Graphic 45 and Petaloo this week. If you have not checked out all of the great inspiration on the company blogs and Facebook pages, you're missing out!! You can visit the companies using the links below. Have fun!! :)

Today, I am sharing this Christmas Wreath that I created with Graphic 45, Petaloo and Xyron Adhesive. I loved this project so much. The products coordinated beautifully. Graphic 45's products are always so rich in elements and colors. Petaloo's flowers are so versatile and Xyron's adhesive makes layering and putting everything together so effortless. I used the St. Nicholas Collection by Graphic 45 and the Pine Picks with Cones & Berries by Petaloo. The paper collection was aged with vintage photo ink. This wreath is perfect for the Holidays!  Take a peek at my tutorial below.

Step 6: Cut letters from coordinated patterned paper from the St. Nicholas Collection and age with vintage photo ink.

Step 7: Run letters through the Creative Station and adhere to the plaque. Attach plaque to the wreath with floral wire. Note: You may have to drill holes on each side of the plaque to attach the plaque to the wreath.

Step 8: Add gold clustered berries to the center of the bows to accent. Continue embellishing as desired.
