BRANCH WREATH...

My dear friend Carrie was hospitalized while recuperating from surgery. I went to visit and wanted to take something special but small because the room had limited space. She dearly loved this little wreath, and the verse on the mini card was perfect for her circumstance. You've got courage, you've got strength...

DESIGN NOTES: I purchased the 4-1/2" x 4-1/2" branch wreath at a local craft store for less than $2. After the bird, flowers, and leaves were punched, I sponged the bird to add interest. I tried a few different ribbons and the narrow taffeta fit best. The mini card (3-3/4" x 5" folded in half) made with Crumb Cake cardstock, matched the earthy motif. I used the Modern Label punch across the bottom of the card. The Multipurpose Liquid Glue easily adhered the paper pieces to the wreath.
