Ribbon Wreath
Designer: Michelle Lanning

Glue Arts: Hot Glue Gun and Glue Sticks
Mini wreath form from Michael's
May Arts Ribbon & lots of it!
Crepe Paper

First start by wrapping the entire wreath with crepe paper. 
Cut ribbon into 3.5 inch strips. 
Sew them together and then hot glue from the center of the wreath out. Continue and alternate ribbons to your liking.

I finished the wreath off by making a little flower from the elastic gingham ribbon.

I hope you like this! It really is a quick project and comes out too cute!

"Flowers for a sweetie"
Designer: Lindsay Wahl
Designer Tip: I purposefully made this a "simple" project that could be completed with an elementary classroom, a girl scout troop, a church group, etc. Even my 3-year-old would be able to help me with several of the steps on this project. Just make sure the soup can is free from sharp edges. You can always add a ring of tape to the inside to be safe. Enjoy! 

Glue Arts Adhesives: 3-d Combo Pack, Adhesive Squares, Ribbon Adhesive
May Arts Ribbon

Die cuts: Little Yellow Bicycle

Pixie Stix
Soup can
Twine: The Twinery

1. Trim ribbon so that it will fit your soup can. Use Ribbon Adhesive to adhere ribbon to the can. I used two strips of adhesive because the ribbon is so wide. Remember to burnish the liner before removing to make sure adhesive transfers to the ribbon. Have all of the seams line up on the front of the can. They will be covered.
2. Use Adhesive Squares to adhere chipboard pieces to the front of the can. Use foam adhesive to give a few hearts added dimension.
3. Use twine to tie Pixie Stix together (I tied 4 in a bundle.). Use Adhesive Squares to add die cut flowers to the bundled stems.
4. Arrange flowers in can. I used some extra ribbon inside the can to help the flowers stand. You could also use tissue or floral foam.
