The Wreath

We all know what it’s like to have that one photo, whether it be that extra photo you couldn’t fit on your last layout or a random photo that you love. Deciding what to do with those photos can be hard, but one-page layouts are to the rescue! And today we have a fun way to frame and bring focus to your one photo; we call it The Wreath. All you need is some of your favorite paper and the Celebrate 8 Designer Template.

How To Make It Step By Step

When deciding on what paper to use, we suggest you find patterned paper for your background and a coordinating solid color cardstock that is colored on both sides. For the cardstock, do not pull out a double-sided patterned paper. It won’t work with this technique.

After you have your paper, trace the Celebrate 8 Template 5-6 times on your cardstock then cut them out. After they are cut out you can choose if you want to ink the edges or you can doodle on them once you’re finished.

Once you’ve made the decision, you’re going to take all 5-6 cut-outs and make sure they are facing the left side pointed up. Then you are going to bend the left side backward until it’s folded into wings (or an upside-down mustache, it’s up to you)  and ta-da! You have the beginnings of your wreath.

After you’ve folded it, adhere the crease so that it stays together, and then adhere the back so you can stick it to your background page.


Once you’re finished adhering everything down, go ahead and add that one photo and some other embellishments to help spice it up.

Here are more examples of how to use the Celebrate 8 Template to frame your one photo. Leslie Prinkki suggested doodling around the edges of your wreath to give it a decorated and elegant feel or just ink it and keep it plain.
