Seasonal Wreathe

I gotta tell ya, I am in love with these Id Badge Holders!!! I had so much fun making the Beyond the Sea Booklet, I just had to make something else with these little gems.

Because it is sooooo easy to load these with Designer Papers, I had this idea for a "Seasonal" Wreathe, one I could just change out the papers and have a wreathe for Summer, Fall Winter, Spring, and Holiday, well, you get the idea -- anything I wish.

I made a circle using cardboard, then covered it with Aleene's Tack-It Over & Over Glue. This glue is designed to be used over and over again. It is so sticky, I would advise to "detack" it somewhat by lightly pressing an old t-shirt over it. The lint will transfer and cause the surface to be tacky but not exceptionally so.

While the glue was drying, I cut Designer Pager to fit each of the ID Badges I used for this project. I used 3 sheets of 12x12, one for each size of ID Badge Holder. I was able to get all the cuts I needed for each badge and still have some paper left.

I assembled the wreathe using the larger ID Badge Holders on the outside, then using the next size I layered down until I used the smallest size. I needed a something to enhance the wreathe, and a bow is always nice, but I could have used flowers, since this is for Summer. For Fall I can use leaves, gourds, pinecones, Winter I could use poinsettias, snowmen, Springtime calls for Easter Bunnies, eggs, well, you get the idea -- what ever floats my boat!!!

I just love how this turned out and can't wait to be able to change it up. I made a video of the process HERE, on my YouTube channel, or just watch below.

I hope you enjoyed this cute idea and will consider using these gems in your projects. You can visit their website here to see all the different sizes they have to offer.
