For September's Group Post it's all about Floral Projects. For this month's group post, I'm sharing this floral wreath which is the perfect to hang in any area of your home. To create my floral wreath, I've used dies from the Paper Flowers Collection. Grab a cup of your favourite beverage and read below as I have a tutorial for you so that you can re-create my Floral Wreath at home. You'll also want to make sure to stop by the Elizabeth Craft Designs Blog to check out the rest of the projects.

Elizabeth Craft Designs September Group Post - Floral Projects
To start, you'll need a 6" wreath.
The next two steps use the Florals 2 Die.
Die cut three of the singles leaves and two of the two leaves out of White Soft Finish Cardstock. Using a blending tool with foam, blend Peeled Paint Distress Ink over the entire surface of both two leaves. Using a blending tool with foam, blend Shabby Shutters Distress Ink over the entire surface of the three single leaves. Shape the leaves as desired.
Die cut three extra large flower petals, five large flower petals, five medium flower petals and five small flower petals out of White Soft Finish Cardstock. Using a blending tool with foam, blend Broken China Distress Ink over the entire surface of all the flowers petals. Shape the flower petals as desired.
From the Stamen Flowers die, die cut three of the swirly pieces out of White Soft Finish Cardstock. Using a blending tool with foam, blend Peeled Paint Distress Ink over the entire surface of the three swirly pieces.
Now it's time to build your flowers.
Start by building your extra large flowers, they will need one of every flower petal stacked together, making sure the small flower petal is on top. To finish the centres of the flowers, I used a Beaded Berry. Now build your large flowers, they will need one of every flower petal that remains stacked together, making sure the small flower petal is on top. To finish the centres of the flowers, I used a Beaded Berry. If you need, reshape your flowers.
On the wreath, adhere the two large flowers, one single leaf and a swirly piece in the top left side of the wreath as desired.
Adhere the three extra large flowers, the two single leaves, the two two leaf leaves and the two swirly pieces in the bottom right side of the wreath as desired.
To finish the wreath, wrap a piece of burlap at the top of the wreath and then create a loop at the top of the wreath using the burlap.
