Book Page Wreath

I know....book page wreaths have been around the best of blogs for....a while, but my daughter and I just decided to make one last night. I said ,   "what are you crazy...it's Friday night and I am pooped sure dear...we can make one."  Lindsay cut the circle base while I searched in my book stash for one I could part with without tears....lol. ( I counted 72 in my bedroom...and did NOT count the Chicken Soup collection). I may need therapy....

This is how it came out:


We folded the pages and used a hot glue gun instead of the "rolling page" method.


Flowers : cut out with T!M HOLTZ tattered floral die cut  using Vagabond or Cuttle Bug....

I used the book- Once Around The Sun....... removed pages and trimmed the edges that were torn...

Supplies used: glue gun, double stick tape, stapler, book pages





We began our journey at 6:00 P.M.. Of course....we had supper, grilled steak and corn/potatoes cooked by the chief cook and bottle washer... man of the home...the wonderful Mr. Lakeland...It's so nice to have the support of your husband when crafting!  The project was complete by 9:00 P.M. Lindsay totally made this one by herself. All I did was fold the pages and cut and assemble the flowers. This is one very proud mamma...after all ......to pass on the crafting gene on to the next generation is an important aspect of crafting!






WAY TO GO - LINDSAY!
