Extravaganza - Wreath and Banner

The wreath below was quite simple to create but it makes a big statement, mostly due to the size of the bird.
To stabilize the bird, I cut out the bird in White Daisy cardstock about 6x before making a single cut out of the B&T paper for the top piece. I just glued together all the cardstock pieces to make it nice and thick. To get the wing to stick out, I used a hot glue gun to hold the wing in place. 
The burlap flower was made by rolling and turning out the edges as it was rolled. It was then hot glued at the end to hold it together.

The banner was a bit difficult to read under the lighting in my Extravaganza booth but it 
does read "BONJOUR".
