Look at this cute wreath I made with Designer Series Paper.  I used some retired paper but I've seen these done with the current Winter Frost paper and they're beautiful. 
Here's a close up.  You just cut your DSP in 1/2" strips and then curl it with your bone folder.  And don't ask me how many strips I used.  I just kept adding until it looked the way that I wanted it.  All I can say is to only cut so many at a time and when you're getting close to having it full then don't cut to many more strips.  I just attached my strips with straight pins.  I didn't use any glue but you could and it would last longer.

For this wreath I used a green foam base but if you use the Winter Frost DSP then I would definitely use a white base.  Because it does show through some what.

  1. This is absolutely beautiful Lynn!! You might be surprised at how long it lasts with the straight pins. Remember the Christmas trees I made about 3-4 years ago -- they are in great shape still, and I used the straight pins too.
