Christmas Wreath





I like the finished effect, but folding each of these stars 5 times was time consuming, stars are a Sixxix die, I used 24 of the larger size 12 green and 12 patterned  and 11 small stars. Ribbon and charm from stash.

I LOVE it!! That wreath is fabulous! I can imagine that folding each of the stars was very time consuming, but it turned out absolutely gorgeous! And it would be an awesome way to use up those little scraps that you just can't bear to throw away. Thanks for playing with CHNCC2.
