Today I am going to teach you how to make a door wreath with ribbon and a wire wreath.
I chose to use green, yellow and orange ribbon to match my party.
I picked this wire wreath form up at joann’s for $1.99
First I tied the yellow ribbon the the inner 2 wires.
Then the orange to the outer 2 wires
then the green to the middle 2 wires.
Continue to do the steps over and over again.
This is what the back of the wreath look like.
Continue the 3 steps all the way around the wreath until it looks like this.
Once you are at this stage, grab your scissors and start curling.
Here is the finished look.
Another fantastic tutorial on how to make pirate eye patches.
I can hear what you are thinking, I have been posting a ton of stuff on pirate party items. well after this weekend you will have full blown photos of my pirate party. and let me tell you all, you are all going to simply love it.
Anyway back to the how-to today.
I printed off a pirate patch and cut around the design to use as a template.
Place the design on the whatever material you choose to use for the project. I chose to use 2 different shades of felt.
Now that the design is in place, use a pen, marker or pencil to trace around the design. Continue this process until you reach the number of patches you need.
Here you can see I chose a red and a green felt and have traced many patches.
Time to cut them all out now.
To make the holes more sturdy and so that the ribbon or thick thread you chose to use won’t pull through the felt. I used eyelets in a variety of colors.
Once the eyelets were attached to the patches. I used a thick black thread to make the straps. and now you are finished unless you decide to bling them out on the front or add a skull to the front.
I have been so swamped since the scrapbook expo that i have been going crazy today. So I thought since I was working on some of my SnugglyBugg orders that I would share with you some of my new drawings that I will clean up a bit and make into new die cuts.
these are all die cuts that some of my customers requested.

As I have said in previous posts, me and my younger sister are attending the scrapbook 2012 Expo here in Sandy, UT this Saturday. We wanted to make it a fun day, get dressed up and also represent pink possibilities. So here is a step by step on how we blinded our black v-neck t-shirts out. We first taped out a rectangular box on the front of the t-shirt which would help us keep the wording and design straight. (and in a proper place for a women’s chest area)
We chose to go with white crystals for the wording and pink ones for the pig face you will see later on.
First things first was testing out a few possible choses for the 2 capital “p’s”. we both designed our own (which are the following 2 shots)
this one is hers
this one was mine
after looking at both of them we designed and choose this one to be the winner.
so after placing the 2 capital P’s We had to figure out a way to line up the remainder of the letters and still be remotely straight and stay within the space.
I took to long pieces of masking tape and overlapped them. I then wrote with black marker on the non sticky side.
then flipped it over so we could place the stones.
by placing the stones upside down or color side down. we would be able to turn the whole word over and place on the shirt where it needed to go.
We did the same trick with the pig head.
First drawing the design on the non-sticky side.
then placing facedown the pink stones
once you placed all the stones. using a q-tip spread your glue on the back of all the stones
flip over and place onto the shirt where you would like it
make sure you press down for a minute or 2 before trying to take the tape off.
slowly and patiently start removing the tape.
then we made a pretty pink bow, added glue to the knot and placed on the pigs head
Next we wanted a little more bling. so decided to add some stars with stones from an old costume jewelry necklace I had.
here is what the necklace looked like before i started cutting it apart. it was already missing some pearls. so this was a great way to recycle this piece
I grabbed my pair of wire cutter
and started cutting the links apart
this is what the end result looked like
Final Product. Now it just needs to sit for 24 hours for the glue to cure. We were so excited with the end result.
