Vickie, this took me about four hours but I had a wonderful time trying to figure out how to do all the layers and where to place all the die. It was well worth the time. Thank you for your lovely comment Vickie. I appreciate everyone's comments so much.

Joyce, It is no trouble but the only thing listed on my Fiskars scissors is Fiskars Corner Edgers. I'm sorry this is not much help.

Donna, I think you could push into the paper with the small end of the stylus to create the molded round berry look and then punch it out. I think it may be flattened in the process. If you get a very tiny small tipped stylus you can push for the punched circles by placing on the molding pad and pushing in. I like to do this on a very tightly made mouse pad and I double layer the pad so I have more room for give while pushing down. I hope that makes sense. Here is a link to a photo in one of my flower tuturials showing this step. http://kittiekraft.typepad.com/.a/6a00e54ed958f38833014e884b0a7c970d-popup I sure hope this helps Donna.
Debbie, this embossed wreath is stunning. I love the green and white with the red berries.

Hi Diana, check out my ribbon tying tuturial here. I think it will help. I grew up in my mother's flower shop and she taught me as a kid how to use ribbon in floral arrangements and the lessons stuck. http://www.kittiekraft.com/ribbon-tying-tutorials.html
