Punched Leaf Wreath for Cards, Packages, Etc.

Mini Leaf Wreath Card

I love my die cutting machines but sometimes you just have to punch things ya know? I like to use up scraps if I can and punches are a great way to do that. So here’s how I made my punched leaf wreaths that I used on the gift bags I shared yesterday as well as some cards.

For this project you will need:
  • Paper scraps
  • Leaf punch
  • Glue

Mini Leaf Wreath

Punch an assortment of leaves from your paper scraps.  I had some embossed papers and some patterned papers in my scrap stash.

For the wreath base, punch a large circle from another scrap. This one is 2 inches. Then use a smaller punch and punch out the middle of your circle.

Voila. Wreath form. Glue your leaves so they cover the wreath base. I kind of angled mine and used Ranger Glossy Accents but any quick adhesion glue will do. You could use glue dots or foam dots too.

This one I adhered to a card using foam dots. The one below I used on my gift bags.
