there is still a lot of production line sewing happening here. i need a bit of a change from it and i'm sure you would like that too, as it seems to be a recurring theme in this space.
i have been making some miniature paper wreaths which i am using as christmas decorations and as a give away decoration when wrapping christmas gifts.
i made a little step by step tutorial for you if you would like to make them.
1. cut some strips of paper 4cm wide using a guillotine or a ruler and paper knife.( i used good quality christmas catalogues which were made from heavy weight low sheen paper and worked well because they tend to be colour appropriate for decorations. the best that i have come across are the provincial living and country road christmas catalogues)
2. cut these strips into 8cm lengths.
3. fold each strip in half first length ways and then width ways.
5. start building the wreath piece by piece by inserting the points of each individual piece into the open side of the next piece so that it fits snuggly.
6. build piece by piece eight times until you can push the eight pieces together to for a circular wreath. if you are concerned about them coming apart you can put a dot of glue on the point of each folded mitre prior to fitting it into the next piece.
7. i use a tiny hole punch to pierce the top of one point and then thread a piece of red thread (2 ply cotton) through the hole
the finished product- ta-daa
