gum wrapper wreath

i'm probably aging myself
by admitting
that a favorite past-time of mine
as a kid
was making gum wrapper chains
i just loved it
sticks of gum
are not easily found anymore
colorful paper is
it works just as well
for a tutorial on how to fold
click here
i cut the heart shape from a box 
and wrapped it in pink ribbon
then wrapped it again
in gum wrapper chain
rather loosely,
to give it a "bubbled" effect
this is not a quick craft
i folded about 5000 papers for this wreath
i suggest
getting the whole family involved
