I had so much fun making my project! It was hanging on my front door for Memorial Day and it will be there for July 4th and any other occasion I can find :)

I mentioned in my Creative Challenge wreath post that I’d almost used a grapevine wreath for it’s base, so I decided to go with that for this one. Adds to the “Americana” look, I think, don’t you?

So, I knew what I wanted to do and just set out making the components. Rosettes using my Die-namics 1/4” Rosette, my Die-namics Mini Doily Circles, Die-namics By the Letters Uppercase, and the new Die-namics Star STAX. I made lots of Die-namics Star STAX in different sizes and papers, and finally cut out a new Vanity License Plate. On it I stamped “1776” using the accompanying stamp set and “est.” using the Typewriter Alphabet set. Then it was just a matter of arranging the way I wanted and adhering to the wreath. Again, I thought it needed something under the die cuts so I adhered some Kraft shred with hot glue.

Here’s a close up of the top part of the wreath…

With all of MFT’s fabulous dies to choose from, I can’t wait to make more wreaths. One—or two—for every season :)

Here are the Die-namics dies I used on this project:
