How to make a Corrugated Trellis
 
To make this trellis, take a piece of card board and strip away the outer paper on both sides so just the coragated paper is showing. (It can be a fussy job depending on the card board you are useing but it is worth it), then cut  into strips 

Sizes For Strips
1 @ 3" (Vertical center strip)
2 @ 2 7/8" Vertical strips)
2 @ 2 6/8" (Vertical outer left and right strips)
1 @ 2 1/2  (Top Horizontal strip)
1 @ 2 " (Bottom Horizontal strip)

Cut 2 @ 1" by 3/4 " for the base of the trellis
Be sure to cut the strip ends on an angel and line them up as shown in the picture.
 
 
 
 


The blue flowers are from Wild Orchid Crafts and the small flowers on the trellis are from Recollections.

Naomi, this is just so beautiful .... your detail is amazing, love it so much and the way the flowers trail.
I'm glad you are feeling much better, I have been following along as much as I can. Life here has been so full on, I did email a few times but didn't want to pester you so much while you have not been well. I'm only just starting to catch up, but may not be around much - my blog is well in advance. When you are feeling much better we will catch up... I miss you...xxxxx
