Just last week, Elli shop designer Emily shared one of her recent crafty gift projects. . . a mini version of the paper rose wreath. It is oh so adorable and easy to create with only six paper roses, so we had to share this fun project with you. Emily found a 5.5 inch foam disk at the dollar store and cut out a circle with her craft knife to create the wreath base. (When I made mine I used a metal cookie cutter to punch out the center of the disk. A drinking glass would work too). She then hot glued the 6 roses onto the foam base along with the paper leaves then glued a ribbon around the edge of the disk to cover the edge of the foam and give it a finished look. To make the white mini wreath you can download those printable roses here.
I am loving the soft tones of blush, pink and peach and thought these colors together would make a gorgeous group of roses to use for my Emily inspired mini wreath. You can download the six page PDF below for the three rose template in a watercolor print, both fronts and backs. I am also including a printable for green leaves below, also to print both front and back. Print the PDFs onto a simple text weight printer paper. For my tutorial on how to make the paper rose you can click here. (Look for the new paper rose tutorial video on Friday). So run to your dollar store and grab some foam disks in their floral section along with some pretty inch-wide ribbon and make this mini wreath as a Valentine gift, for DIY wedding decor or to hang on your own wall. I am off to Salt Lake City for the Alt Summit! See you next week. ~ Lia
