Picture Wreath

A picture wreath. The idea was from Parents Magazine. I had Corinnea cut me a 12" circle from mat board (but you can use poster board too. I was going to cut to circles from poster board and glue them together but did the mat board instead). I used a (approximately) 2.5" scallop punch and a 2" circle punch. I printed out a couple of pages of black and white pictures from the program Digital image pro. I just selected multiple photos and chose to print 9 wallet sized photos to a page. I used a clear overlay (scrapbook paper that's clear) for the inner circle and glued the silver letters to it so appears to float. Thanks Lizy and Mary for helping with this!




And here is another felt garland I'm working on.. All are from our die-cut machine. I should scan them in so anyone reading this who wants to make one but doesn't have access to our machine can print the templates out and make them.

This is my present from Jon. A new camera! Just like this one and bought because I saw hers. I had a tiny instant camera but they stopped making the film for it (if you've ever been to my house, and seen my refrigerator filled with these little 1.5"x1" photos you'll know what I'm talking about). SO I was so happy to see something similar! These photos are credit card size. The pics below were test runs. The one of Emily's feet was from hitting the button on accident and the one of Ava, she moved.



Isn't it cute?



Look what Lizy made me?? Two felt mushrooms. I LOOOVE them!! The tiny one hanging next to them is from Jessica and the mushroom person is from Jenny B.

The picture wreath turned out really good! It would make for a great xmas gift too.
I can already tell I'm going to like the next garland you make as well(I already like them all anyway.)
The tiny pictures and mushrooms are really cute!

The picture wreath is SO cool! I was staring at it wondering why the letters "popped" out like that... then DUH! That is so clever!

The wreath turned out SO COOL! I have never seen the clear paper... is it thick or flimsy? I need some... not sure why though it just sounds like fun! I can't wait to decorate for christmas!!

Oh another thought it would be cool if you grown kids and did a wreath with a family picture from every christmas...

You already know I love the wreath, crafty girl.... The camera is really cute and the pictures come out great. Want to see it. Was it expensive? Can't wait to see the new garland finished :)
