Well...the hop for the new release is here! Don't you love everything?! I can't even pick what I like best...love it all!!!

So, here's what I made for you today. I LOVE how this came out. Takes a bit of time, but super easy.


There ya go! Don't you just love it! I do...for sure!
So...to start I cut a 7 inch ring that is 1 inch wide with my Cameo. I layered probably three or four together so it is rather sturdy.
Then, pick your papers and start cutting LOTS of the Fun Size Bow from the new release. I didn't use the tiny piece that wraps around the center because it wasn't going to show anyway. 
I used my hot glue gun to assemble the bows...I did not want these coming apart! 
For each "piece", I used two bow dies, crisscrossed in the middle, hot glued together. 
 BE CAREFUL...THESE ARE LITTLE AND THAT GLUE IS HOT!!! 
Then I hot glued a colored gem in the center. 
Next, I cut lots of just the tail part of the die in red. I then cut those in half. I tucked them in various places around the wreath where I felt it needed it. If you wanted, you could actually do it all green, tuck in and hot glue some of the super cute mini ornaments that out there. Honestly, the sky is the limit with how you could do these. I can envision many color pallets! 
 I kept mine simple, but maybe something glittery would be nice. I stopped here...I liked it this way.
I had some burlap ribbon in my stash and made a loop and bow. I hot glued the loop to the back side and hot glued the bow to the front.
These would make a nice gift that really isn't much money...just your time.

Here's what I used.
Fun Size Scallop Stitched Bow Die ~ New Release

I think that's the shortest ingredient list I've ever had!!! One good thing, you can make this even if you don't have a lot of Emma's products. How cute would this be...BIG....using the other bow die?!?!?!
So...from here, you go on to visit Cindy
Have fun hopping! I know you'll see lots of great things!
