Burlap and Blooms Wreath

It was my turn to go to Chris's (sis-in-law) today, and we had planned to make
this beautiful wreath using the Stampin' Up! Burlap and Blooms Simply Created Wreath Kit.
The blurb says - "flowers for wreath are die cut and ready to assemble - just hot glue together."
Yes they were all die cut, but it still took us nearly 4 hours to create this!!
We really enjoyed making it, but got a little messy with the glue, so had to make a visit to the wash basin to wash our hands after every flower.  This could have been because we used Tombow 
white glue to make the flowers - we weren't confident enough to shape the flowers and then hot glue them together- it dried too fast!!

The finished wreath

Just to give you an impression of the size - the centre hole measures 7.1/2"

I am really impressed with this - the only thing I would add, would be maybe a few leaves.
Christine won her kit at Convention, I bought mine as a Demo pre-order,
if you would like one, they are available from 28th January (next Tuesday!!)
from the Stampin' Up! Spring Summer Catalogue.
