I am loving all of the beautiful book page wreaths I've seen popping up all over the place. So I decided I needed to create one for myself ... Fiskars-style! Running border punches along the edges of each page adds gorgeous texture.
Begin with a chipboard base. I created mine using the largest Super Sized Circle Template for the outer edge and a smaller one for the interior ring.
Tear out pages from a book (mine is from the dollar store) and run a border punch along the straight edge of each page. This went much quicker than I anticipated as I was able to run three pages through at a time. I tore out and punched all of the pages during an episode of Conan one evening.
You can use the pages at the size they come or trim down for a smaller wreath. I trimmed my pages down to three inches wide after punching. Now it's time to start gluing on your pages. I used a glue gun with a low temperature setting so I wouldn't have to worry much about burning myself. You can fold or roll each page any way you wish. I recommend experimenting a little. The important thing is not to crease any folds so the wreath will be full. Here's the fold I ended up going with:
I rolled the page in one time and accordion "folded" the rest. I rolled one time so that text would be showing in front instead of the blank edge of the paper.
Glue sections along the edge of your wreath base being sure to get glue in between the layers. Once you have the perimeter covered, come back around with an overlapping layer, folding a "tab" over at the bottom of each section to glue on for fullness.
Once you get to the center, fold your tab through the center and glue to the back to cover the chipboard.
At this point you will want to go back and fill in spots with individual sections to get the wreath full and evenly spread. Just keep going until you're happy. It's quite addictive and I had to tell myself to walk away. I guess that's a good sign that this is a fun craft!
