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.
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.
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.
