Book Page Wreath

                                  
I have been planning to make a book page wreath for a long time,
well today I made it happen.




I used some scrap cardboard


and cut out a ring.


Roll the pages into cone shapes.


Then glue the pages onto the ring.


add a second layer.



I love how it turned out,
oh did I mention I punched the corners.
It adds a nice "lacey" detail.

OK. This wreath. To-die-for. I have been thinking about making one forever and now I think you have pushed me over the edge. If my life ever settles down I am doing it.

I'll email when I come back from the great beyond of being so busy I can't even think about wreaths or friends, or email. Lisa~
