Stampin' Up! - Advent Calendar Wreath

Hi ....again!

Here's an Advent Calendar Wreath which I re-created from one featured by the wonderful Marelle Taylor in a copy of Australian Cardmaker & Papercraft 2010.

I made it for a friend of mine and her family and hopes it will bring them some festive fun! I punched out the back of each scallop envelope with the 1 3/4 circle punch and attached a circle treat cup. I decorated it with the circle sentiment "Joy" from Perfect Punches and attached it to the inside. I filled each one with a little Dove chocolate. :)

Materials used:
Cardstock: Riding Hood Red, Old Olive, Soft Suede, Whisper White
Ink: Riding Hood Red, Old Olive, Soft Suede (for stamped image inside treat cups)
Stamp Set: Perfect Punches ("Joy" sentiment)
Tools: Timeless Type Alphabet/Numeric Dies, Scallop Envelope Die, 1 3/4 circle punch, 1 3/8 circle punch, glue gun, SNAIL adhesive.
Accessories: Very Vanilla grosgrain ribbon, Chocolate Chip grograin ribbon, misc green ribbon, Riding Hood Red striped grosgrain ribbon, Circle Treat Cups, wreath
