February Mini Wreath Swap

Post by thriftycrafter on Tue Feb 03, 2015 11:09 pm

I have been a bit selfish with this one as I fancy the idea, so I've put it first :)
(Postcards next month)

So, make a mini wreath no bigger than A5 (half A4)
Bear in mind the depth of embellies if you want to keep to small letter
If you don't mind coughing up for large letter postage, please keep to the small diameter and just add depths as you wish.

Use any kind of craft/theme/embellishments you desire, include a hanging loop at the back please and your signature/name.

5.Cath -received
6.Billie - received
7.KT -received

Post to the person below you on the list, KT to Lynda please;[/b]by Thursday 26th Feb [/b]

Check the depth of your envie before it goes in case it needs a large letter stamp please.

PM me to let me know it's on the way and then post a pic in the gallery when yours arrives.

Please could someone powerful set up a gallery for these in due course?

Might be nice to have a bit more, Karelyn: how about moving sign-up back a bit? Could always PM anyone who hasn't been on, just before the cut-off date.

Please add my name: thanks.

yes I will join in, but please tell me what you mean by a wreath? I mean I dont understand what we have to do... can you show us one? Do you mean like the things people put on the doors at Christmas or what? surely not a funeral type wreath, sorry to be confused. I will join in anyway, but need to know what Im supposed to be making.

You can have wreaths for all times of year, Maria: there's a house we pass on the way to Northallerton that has one on their door virtually all year - different ones for different seasons. For a papercraft one, you're not limited to foliage like you are with a door one: could be all flowers, or all butterflies (unless your swapee is Kim, lol), all squares or all cogs - whatever.

There you go Maria, these are mostly large door ones and a lot of Christmas ones, but one I saw was like a little heart decoration to hang on a door made with fabric flowers, just a pretty little thing to hang up in a ring shape really. Could hang anywhere, or nowhere.

Great message Kim, will expect big things next month then with the postcards ;)

Hope Kate's OK: she's normally a very regular one for swaps, but has either not come on or can't do this one.

Sorry Karelyn. I did actually have a nice idea for this, but I've got half the living room in my craft room now and years of paperwork all over the floor trying to get it sorted. I had the room cleared ready to start playing again but now, I can't get to anything again.

One question I know there is a minimum large size, but is there a minimum small one.
