Using a Template to Stamp a Wreath

Here is an idea to help you get more use from your small stamps.  
Stamp them multiple times in a circle to make a wreath.

Wreath Card made with Stampin'UP!'s Meant to Be stamp set and Sunshine Wishes Thinlets

The magic number is "8", at least on my card. 
The illusion of a circle is made from 8 stamped images.

What small stamps do you have that would work?
 You could stamp free-hand or lightly draw a circle on your paper.
To get my images lined up I made a template.


This short video shows how easy it is to make the template and to stamp with it.


  • The template can be used with out the stamp positioner
    . . . but the Stamparatus does make it go faster. 
  • You can create the template by measuring the square holes
     . . . but using a square die is so much easier
I will have links below to all the product used on this card.  I'm happy to answer questions about this or any other project.  Leave me comment below.

Making a wreath with your small stamps is easy to do and its a fun way to let your small stamps make a different kind of statement.  I hope I've inspired you to head to your craft stash and check out the stamps you have that might work for this technique.
