IAR "Tis the Season" Blog Hop

Hi everyone, WELCOME to the I Am Roses "Tis the Season" Blog Hop. If you are following the hop, you are coming from R.Maria Sabina. There is going to be so much holiday inspiration on this hop, hope you enjoy!

So here is what I have created for you today, I made a decorative bow from scratch, no sewing at all. This creation of mine will grace the front of my apt. door. The bow measures approx. 16.5" x 23".

I used some grey chevron burlap trim for the bow and two mini wooden wreaths for the center.

Here are close up photos of the mini wreath. Everything I used to construct this bow all came from my craft stash, yay for not needing to go to the store!

The larger of the trio of roses is a R60 (2") and the other two in red are R77's (2")

White Foam Head Stamens (ST1), Small Red/White Scrapbook Flowers (S10), and Red/Green Lilies (LY1) are used as beautiful fillers to make the wreath look more lush. I used Maple Leaves (L0) as the base for the flowers to lay on. 

I also filmed a start-to-finish video that you can watch here: Paperdrama. Let's get on to the details of this hop.
