514 Pages

Hello Readers,
514 pages, 514 staples, 514 pieces of scotch tape, 514 globs of glue, 514 rolled pieces of paper and only 1 slight burn from the "hot glue" gun..... it was all worth it.

Isn't she gorgeous!! Here is where I got my inspiration I just love Pinterest.

Okay this when I give my hubs his props! Tom reminded me that I had a rotary cutter and things would go a lot faster if I used it instead of tearing out pages. High five Tom!!

This is the back of the wreath

this is the front and now the fun begins

I used a paperclip to mark my center so that my design would be balanced

here is the wreath from the side

and the other side....I used a candle ring to embellish the wreath.
looks good but things are out of balance


now that's much better
This craft was so much fun and the best thing about it is I had everything on hand :) Bonus
I'm glad that I took the time to make one.........how about you why not give it a try.

  1. Wow, Vicky, I'm impressed! I made a really small one of these as a Christmas ornament and I thought it was really hard! Kudos to you, it's lovely!

  2. Happy Easter Vicky! This looks great! And especially great next to that chair. I wanted to try this when I ran across it weeks ago but didn't save and follow the blogger :-(
    Guess this means my opportunity is here :-)

  6. Beautiful job on your wreath, Vicky! Looks like it took a lot of patience to complete. I've been slowly working on a bracelet for my daughter for last couple of days trying to get it finished for her. Hope you had a nice weekend!
