In our MOPS group this last week, we did a really easy, fun and cheap craft for Valentine's Day. We used the tutorial at The Hybrid Chick. We did a few things differently. We didn't use glue dots, we used staples. It worked fine since we used patterned paper the staples didn't show. Since were using our scrapbook collections, we didn't have double sided paper. So, we took two different papers and put them back to back. To keep them from slipping, we did one staple by the fold. We did find that thicker paper (cardstock) did work better. I did thinner paper and it didn't keep the shape as well as the girls that used the thick stuff.
Enjoy our wreaths!
This wreath was done by Bethany, one of the girls in our MOPS group. She used the more sturdy paper and her's turned out great! I love the black and white paper with the pink ribbon.
Here is another one by Shelby, another mom in our group. Her's is so nice and round! I might have to give mine a little more love to make it as nice as hers!
