Ribbon weaving to create a holiday wreath

I got my parcel from my neighbour yesterday teatime, so sweet of her to take it it in for me. I'm now the proud owner of a full set of SU punches, I have every one now. I also got some more ribbons to add to my collection and I've used some of them on this project here.

Stamp set: Punches 3 (hostess level 1)
Cardstock: Old Olive, Real Red, Whisper White
DSP: I Wish Simply Scrappin' Kit (retired)
Ink: Old Olive, Real Red
Narrow Grosgrain Ribbon: Always Artichoke, Real Red
Punches: Square Scallop, Corner Rounder
Other: Bold Brights Brads

I found the instructions for the wreath here. To make this one, which is approx. 6cm across, I used 1.5m of the Artichoke ribbon and I was left with a 20cm piece at one of the ends afterwards.

I guess you'll have to wait and see what else I got in my order, lol.

Next week is my first blogoversary (gosh a whole year blogging already) and in time honoured tradition I'll be offering candy, so please stop by again soon.

Have a great weekend.
