So right, I get it. Been there done that...
But man, I just A-DORE book page projects and have made a couple of wreaths to go with my garland and wanted to share.
This was made with a Special K cereal box and 2 old books I grabbed at the thrift store for 10 cents each. Now, it would have been so awesome if I took photos along the way and could share a proper tutorial, but alas, I did not. Sometimes I act like I have never blogged before. So I will attempt to explain and I am sure you can figure it out from the photos if you want to make one!
I cut a circle with a hole in the middle from my cereal box. I tore out whole pages and folded them in fourths. Then I hot glued them and folded them into my center hole as I got to the inner layer.
Then I cut a smaller circle from my cereal box, tore pages out of my second book. I folded these pieces narrower and glued them on my circle to resemble a flower. Glued a button in the middle and popped it on the front of my fabulous new wreath!
It was kinda challenging to get those inner pieces to look smooth and nice around the inner circle. So I went back with folded pieces and glued them right on top of the edge of the inner circle all the way around.
It's not rocket science or anything, but next time I will be more responsible and get my action shots to include.
