Using sparkle twine, create wreath shape on shadowbox insert and secure with UltraBond Adhesive; let dry.
Decide on shapes for wreath, choosing a mix of snowflakes and flowers. Cut enough snowflakes from white cardstock and glitter cardstock to fill wreath.
For flowers, use laminator to apply foil to a full sheet of PeelnStick Toner and to several sheets of Holiday Flora Foil-Mates. For best results, wipe toner-printed sheet with a soft, lint-free cloth, then place foil color-side-up on top of toner, inside a folded piece of parchment paper. Insert folded edge of parchment paper into hot laminator. Peel away transfer sheet to reveal finish.
Following cutting machine instructions, cut smaller flowers from foiled PeelnStick Toner Sheets. Cut larger flowers from foiled Foil-Mates.
Begin arranging snowflakes and flowers on wreath. When pleased with arrangement, secure shapes with 3D Zots. Save one flower to glue to bow.
Once all shapes are mounted, tie sheer bow and adhere to top of wreath with UltraBond Adhesive; let dry. Adhere flower to center with 3D Zots. Adhere gems to flower centers.
