Peace Wreath for Die-Cember™

Hi everyone! It’s Shari here with a card idea using dies in an unexpected way. When I was preparing for Die-Cember™ I got this crazy idea of using a couple dies to create a natural looking wreath. So here is how it began.

PB dies

The branches are recognizable, but the flourish pieces are hidden within the arrangement. I had the best time putting it together!

With a little snip here and there before I knew it, I had a wreath. I didn’t glue the pieces down in their entirety, I secured them enough which allowed me to lift up parts for added dimension.

I put together a video showing how it all came together. Enjoy!

Thanks for stopping by today. I’d love to hear how you use your dies in unusual ways.

 

  1. Wowsers! This is so lovely, and looked so therapeutic to make! Love the muted colours and randomness. The wreath looks so natural and organic despite the repetition of distinct shapes. Thanks for the inspiration! Loving DIEcember!

  2. LOVE this, and I loved your “dotted” wreath from an earlier post.
    You always come up with such great designs, whether unexpected or not!
    Makes me want to go look through all of my dies, and find something useful.
    I tend to use the dies for what they are, but, now, I am inspired to look at them differently! Who new that we could just make up different uses for flourish type dies, and boy, does that just stretch the use of all my dies, in a terrific way.
    Thanks Shari, you are just an amazing artist, and I really have been so inspired by all of your various videos!
    Happy Holidays to you, and yours.
