Autumn Traditions Wreath

This is my version of the Autumn Collection Wreath on p. 92 of the Idea Book & Catalog.
I used a 12" metal frame and overlapped the leaves I cut out using Leaves #2 Original Die. Autumn Traditions Designer Series Paper, Always Artichoke were used for the leaves. I used 1" Double-Stitched Grosgrain Ribbon for the bow.
On Monday two ladies came to my studio and cut out their leaves and made a similar wreath for their homes. Each one of our wreaths turned out a little differently, which makes paper crafting so much fun!
I ended up using 2-sheets of Always Artichoke 12 x 12 paper and 2-sheets of 8 1/2 x 11 cards stock in Always Artichoke; 2- Autumn Traditions Designer Series Paper sheets. I used a hot glue gun to attach the leaves to the metal frame. If you want a fuller wreath, just layer more leaves until you achieve the look you want.
