I used the Memory Works express kit, you can use any kind of paper. you need a wreath (which we found at the dollar store) 1 and 1/2 sheets of plain cardstock to wrap the wreath in, cut the strips 1 X 3 and using straight pins wrap them around the wreath. Then cut 5 sheets of double-sided coordinating cardstock in 3 quarters X 3. Take the strips and wrap tightly around a pencil, then using glue dots, fill the wreath in. You desired embellishments to decorate.
