Spring Paper Wreath | Card and Parcel

Awake, thou wintry earth –
Fling off thy sadness!
Fair vernal flowers, laugh forth
Your ancient gladness!
~ Thomas Blackburn

After a week of struggling to adjust to daylight savings time, I’m back on track and no longer loathing my alarm clock. What a treat to come home from work and have two hours of sunshine to enjoy.

All the sunny California days have me day-dreaming about planting a few flowers. Until I can get to the garden center, I created this paper floral wreath to tide me over. I used a green patterned paper so the branches on the wreath look like they have some depth. I had a few flower embellishments in my supply stash but you could use a punch to make the flowers.

I like this little cheerful wreath. It was easy to make and I can use the idea in multiple ways (napkin rings, gift topper, gift tag, ornament, garland, etc.).
