dahlia paper wreath

There are five shades of purple in the paper pad, but you will only need four. Throughout the instructions the shades will be referred to as A-D from light to dark, as packaged in the value pack.
Step 1

Use the paper trimmer to cut the following squares from cardstock:
- Concord Grape = (18) 4" [10.1 cm] squares
- Boysenberry = (18) 4" [10.1 cm] squares
- Planetary Purple = (15) 4" [10.1 cm] squares
- Lavender = (9) 4" [10.1 cm] squares and (6) 3" [7.6 cm] squares

Step 2

The wreath will be assembled darkest to lightest. Roll each square of cardstock into a cone. It will be open at the top and closed at the bottom. Using the hot glue gun, carefully apply glue under the seam and press it closed.
TIP: Take each square of paper by one corner, lay it on the table at the edge and pull down with one hand while holding with the other to create a slight curl to the paper. This will make rolling it into a cone easier.

Step 3

Once the cones have all been made, you can start to assemble the wreath. Using the cake circle, sketch a circle about 2" [51 cm] in from the edge. This is where you will line up the tip of the cones. Begin with the Concord Grape cones. Pinch the bottom of a cone flat and glue it onto the cardboard with the tip at the pencil line. Continue gluing the cones around the circle leaving about a finger width space in between each cone.

Step 4

For the second row, place the Boysenberry cones in between the spaces to create a layered effect. Pinch the bottom of the cone flat and glue into place.

Step 5

For the third row, place the Planetary Purple cones in between the spaces to create a layered effect. Pinch the bottom of the cone flat and glue into place.

Step 6

For the fourth row, place the Lavender cones in between the spaces to create a layered effect. Pinch the bottom of the cone flat and glue into place.

Step 7

Finally glue five of the 3" [7.6 cm] cones around the center, then glue the final one in the center.
TIP: Use a hair dryer over the wreath to help remove the glue strings from the hot glue.

Step 8

Turn the wreath over and glue ribbon to the back, leaving a loop to hang the wreath.
