Our team has been getting crafty lately! Jen from our Everyday team (the mastermind behind our decorative National Stationery Show displays every year) put together a few decorative heart-shaped wreaths with Valentine’s Day in mind. She created both wreaths with extra envelope liners that were going to be recycled, but they could easily be made using any of our gift wraps. The first piece is a massive heart made of tiny paper cones. Jen started with a large piece of cardboard for the backing cut into a heart shape (and sized a bit smaller than the final product — you’ll want the cones to hang over a bit so they hide the cardboard edges), then made small paper cones and adhered them to the outside and worked our way in (check out this tutorial for some helpful visuals). We love our ATG guns for craft projects like this one, but you could also use a glue gun for this sort of project.
Jen also created a heart-shaped wreath using a variety of rose gold foil envelope liner scraps, with hints of gray mixed in. For this wreath, she started again with a heart-shaped, cardboard base, but instead of cones, covered the wreath with small leaf shapes adhered with ATG. To give the wreath volume, Jen pinches the adhered end of the leaf just a bit before adhering so that it doesn’t flatten out. The leaves are then layered over the entire base until it’s covered and voilà! A festive (and reusable) Valentine’s Day wreath.
