Sweet Wreath

I have three little monkeys in school. I created this Sweet Wreath for the two who attend Earths, a public science and technology magnet school.

Using the 1"x8" clear sleeves in the Idea Book I stuffed these M&M's. Making sure to NOT fill it to the top (about 4 from what would have been the top). Using the Stampin' Dimensional Adhesive to hold the ends together is ideal as it is a strong adhesive.

Printing my sentiment on Whisper White card stock I used the Decorative Label Punch to punch it out. I like this berry (like holly?) was punched from Real Red card stock and the 3/4" circle punch. The leaf is from Old Olive and the Bird Builder punch.

Hot Glue adhered the Berry onto the label. I added a dash of white with the White Gel Pen. Hot glue adhered the leaf on to the bak of the label and berry.

Hot glue is too hot to use on the candy tube, I tried and it just melted it. (Smelled funny too, lol.). The Stampin' Dimensional Adhesive on the back of the label is key. While its face down push the two adhesives ends onto the one or two dimensional adhesive octagons and it adds strength to the wreath (of chocolate goodness, lol).

I created 55 of these babies today. The kids shared them with their class and we blessed the staff in the office and our dear crossing guard Dino!

Add a ribbon and it becomes an Ornament! Sweeten your tree with these decorations!!

I hope YOUR holiday is sweet! Thanks for looking! Please feel free to leave a comment.

What Others are SAYING about Getting Crafty with Jamie

Jamie is so passionate and creative about making cards - and wants everyone else to join her in the fun! She is so encouraging and positive in her attitude, helping me along when I get frustrated - and then rejoicing with me at the finished product! I love going to her classes to get new ideas, learn techniques, and have loads of fun in the process. ~ Christine C.

Jamie has wicked awesome classes! If you don’t like a particular stamp or paper/ink color Jamie wants you to change it to suit your style! I did my sister-in-law’s entire bridal shower from invitations/thank you cards, party favors to decorations, it was quaint and whimsical! Everyone ooh’d and ahh’d! I’ve had lots of special requests for classes and Jamie delivers; she always has tasty treats and flavored coffees too ~Ashley W.

I have been attending Jamie's classes for over a year. Her ideas for cards are fresh and fun. She always tries to have several different styles of cards available, so everyone gets to make cards that fit their personal style. The techniques she shows each class can be used in many different applications. She is very patient teacher when instructing class members on how to use the Stampin Up products. ~ Carol D.

If I looked up the word sparkle in the dictionary, I would find Jamie Albanese picture there. I have had the sweet blessing of knowing Jamie and her family for over 5 years now. Every time I am with her I feel loved and inspired. When I am in one of her classes I feel my creative juices flow, as she encourages me to go outside my comfort zone. Jamie helped our girl scout troop make cards for a soldier who needed some encouragement!!! For any of you who have not been in one of Jamie's classes, please don't let another day slip by. She is a beautiful friend and she will become yours too. ~ Blessings, Karen:-)

Jamie has a great eye for style and flair, and it shows in her work. Yet she can pick up on your own individual style and makes great recommendations. I love that she is always flexible for last-minute decision maker mommies like me! So much fun to host craft events with your friends and family - that personal touch always means so much. ~ Adonna
