MCT 3-D Wednesday!


Welcome to another 3-D Wednesday with My Creative Time!  Today we are creating patriotic projects, and I had a blast making this 4th of July wreath!  I found a great step-by-step tutorial on the Little Birdie Secrets blog that was very easy to follow.  I began by creating a wreath form by taking 6" and 7 1/2" circles in Silhouette Studio and cutting them out of a cereal box.  I then covered this with navy  2 1/2" stars.



My patterned stars are cut at 3" and I topped each one with either a brad or a hot glued button.  If you visit the Little Birdie Secrets blog, you can see how to make them 3-dimensional.



I hot glued some black satin ribbon to the back of the wreath for a hanger.  The sentiment is from My Creative Time's My Little Firecracker, stamped onto a banner die made from MCT's Vintage Stitched Label Dies.
