Cardstock Wreath | Victoria Yates | Silhouette UK Blog

Cardstock Door Wreath

Hey everyone!

Vicky here from Cut That Design!

For this project I have made a Remembrance Day wreath, using Silhouette’s Self Adhesive Cardstock and a MDF craft ring I had in my craft stash, which I thought was perfect for this project!

Items you will need:
Silhouette Adhesive Backed Cardstock
MDF Craft / Wreath Ring
Strong Adhesive Sticky Pads (To Adhere Wreath To The Door / Wall)

Open Your Files In Silhouette Studio

I went searching for a 3D Poppy and a leaf in the Silhouette Design store, I purchased, downloaded and opened them up in Silhouette Studio.

I also coloured them in so I could see them clearly.

Replicate

I measured the MDF ring that I was applying to design to, to gauge how many Poppies and leaves I was going to need.

I then used the replicate tool to make several duplicates of the Poppy sections and the leaves.

Cutting The Design

I grouped the sections by colour and sent them to cut.

I did an extra cut of the leaves using a different shade of green, so the wreath would have no gaps showing the wood ring underneath.

Cutting With Cardstock

Next up, I changed the cut settings in the ‘Design Area’, to 12×12 cardstock and removed the registration marks.

I grouped the design by colour, as it’ll be easier for me to move them around on the cutting mat.

I loaded my cutting mat with the first colour of cardstock, set my material as; Cardstock Adhesive Backed, and kept the default cut settings.

I pressed send to cut. I then removed the material from the cutting mat.

I repeated these steps for each colour of cardstock.

Prepping The Poppy

To give the poppy that 3d effect, I curled the edges with my weeding tool, although the same can be done with a pencil or a pen.

Adhere The Poppy Sections

I then adhered the different sections to the Poppy, starting with the largest at the bottom.

I repeated the same process with every Poppy!

As I am using Silhouettes Self-adhesive Cardstock, no glue is required!

Add Leaves Around The Frame

I added the leaves around the wooden frame as shown, the leaves adhered nicely to the wooden frame.

I had a few leaves left over which kept to one side.

Adding The Poppies

I added all the poppies to the wreath.

Once all the poppies were added, I used the leaves that I kept to one side and added them to the wreath where the wood was showing.

Here’s my completed wreath, I added a Strong adhesive foam pad to the back of the wreath and placed it on my door.

I am really pleased with the way this has turned out, and it was so much fun to make.

If you like crafting with Cardstock as much as I do, you will love this fun and quick project.

Thank you for reading and Happy Crafting.
