Spring Dahlia Wreath and Astrobrights Papers #Colorize Giveaway!

Spring Dahlia Flower Wreath!
#Colorize with Astrobrights Paper this Spring!
 Decorate for Spring with vibrant paper!
 
 If you follow me on Instagram,
you'll know I recieved this beautiful and amazing package of paper!
Guys, 26 awesome colors...and I got a sample of all of them!
I got sheets of printer paper and cardstock!
What would you do with all this glorious paper--something extraordinary!
Oh yeah...and a $50 gift card too!
Look at this great sample sheet of all the colors!
 My friend and I got together to make Rolled Paper Wreaths for Spring!
They are so vibrant, they add the perfect POP to Spring decor!
First, I got some cardboard and cut out circles.
You'll also need a hot glue/gun...
and 56 pieces of ASTROBRIGHTS lightweight paper!
 
 Here's the breakdown.
I used:
15 Sheets of Martian Green
15 sheets of Terra Green
11 sheets of Pulsar Pink
11 sheets of Plasma Pink
2 sheets of Galaxy Gold (cut in half)
2 sheets of Solar Yellow (cut in half)

Now, start rolling!
Roll the shorter of the sides and pivot while you roll,
so the bottom left corner is the bottom tip of the cone.
It takes some practice, but after 56 rolls...you'll be pro!
 
 After you roll the cone, hot glue the top corner in place.
You are going to cut off the bottom tip in a minute,
so make sure you are gluing at the top of the cone.

 I alternated my greens.
Cut about 2 inches off the bottom of the cones

 And began gluing them around my cardboard...
about 4 inches down on the cardboard, and slightly overlapped,
but shooting out like rays of the sun.
 
 Until they were all glued down.

 Then I rolled 22 pinks!
I again trimmed off about 3 inches and glued them around
 the cardboard further in the circle.

 Slightly overlapping and alternating colors.
I used all but 6 of them.  The remaining 6 were cut
another inch shorter and placed inside the center.

 Then I cut 2 sheets of each yellow in half.

 Rolled them and added them to the center.

 It looked good...but like it needed something.

 I took 1 sheet of paper and cut it in half.
then cut slits in it every half inch but didn't cut it all the way through.

 Then I could roll it up, glue it in place and curl down the fringes.
 And again with another half sheet of the other yellow.
 Then I hot glued it right in the center!
 Glorious!  Beautiful!
 My friend's turned out fantastic too!
She used lots of colors, different sizes and finished
her center off with some coffee filter flowers!
 Ready for the BEST part?
