Today we are launching our Holiday Blog Hop with Petaloo! When we were discussing, with our team, what the theme of our hop would be, we agreed that the combination of canvas, burlap, flowers and ribbon was a recipe for incredible holiday wreaths! But instead of a traditional wreath, we wanted to kick it up a notch and showcase what it means to think outside of the box.
The Canvas Corp Creative Crew* has been busy designing for this challenge….the Crew was presented with a box filled with colorful flowers and ribbons from Petaloo and another box filled with Canvas Corp stretched canvas and stretched burlap and a few more goodies….with a challenge to put it together and create a holiday wreath – and it was ok to think in or out of the “Wreath” and that we did.
*If the Creative Crew is new to you stay tuned, this is an amazing group of designers who have teamed up to help us tell the story of the Canvas Corp Brands, 7gypsies, Tattered Angels and Canvas Home Basics. We will be making a big announcement, but cannot hold off giving some of them credit as we launch into this project with Petaloo.
Here is a taste of what the Crew started with and you will not believe what they created.
This first project was a team effort, created by Camille and JoAnne….we all had our hands in on this one…thanks JoAnne for pulling all the ideas together. Our Pillow Wreath was created with a touch of 7gypsies and Tattered Angels to our blend of Petaloo and Canvas Corp….everything red, green and oh so holiday. We love the idea of bringing mixed media in for the holidays and a chance to play with so many great textures, fabrics and embellishments. Consider digging through your stash of goodies to see what might just be the perfect touch on our holiday projects. We were gladly surprised with how it all came together.
The Canvas Pillow Wreath started with a mist of Glimmer Mist to to create the holly background; each gift package was created with a fun mixture of vintage papers, embellishments, ribbons, flowers, burlap, canvas and a touch of Glimmer Mist; the ribbon was created with a layer of red burlap, misted french script cardstock, kraft c-flute and finished with Petaloo ribbon. Create the Noel banner with triangles of canvas and 7gypsies chipboard letters finished off with Petaloo flowers. Add a pillow form (we love Fairfields’s pillow forms) or turn it into a round wall hanging. These gift wrapping ideas can be used for your holiday gift wrap as well. Create fun packages for under the tree.
