I started with a styrofoam base. You can make this wreath in any size you want. The larger the more time intensive. Draw a circle between 4 and 5 inches in diameter. I used a glass as my pattern.
Paper Chase Wreath
This project takes hours but the results are spectacular. The wreath is made of dozens of paper roses cut out of book pages. If you want a gift this is an idea. It reflects much care and is beautiful.
After you become comfortable with the process you can cut five pages at a time.
Beginning at the outside cut a spiral leaving about an inch in the center
Beginning at the outside use the tweezers to wrap the paper into a tight coil. Put some hot glue in the center of the paper and hold the coil down until it adheres. Make many of these.
Glue the flowers on the base. I started on the inside rim and worked out.
Add a bow of your choosing. I used raffia.
And voila! The final product is spectacular! I made three of these: one for each of my daughters.
