I have recently found Brandy J's fabulous blog, "Just Our Style". She has the greatest ideas including this wreath. Her directions are pretty simple and her photos are very helpful.
To start I cut out an 18-inch donut, about 2 inches wide, from a side of the box that the printer came in. Cutting it was hard on the fingers but it was worth the zero price tag.
She used a scalloped circle punch to make the circles. I didn't have one so I went all old school and used a compass. Do you even know what a compass is?
I drew 6 two-inch circles on each page and then cut out 6 sheets at a time to make it go faster.
When I got to the step where you glue the circles into flowers, I found a technique that minimized my burnt fingers a bit. I took 6 of the circles, dabbed the centres with glue, then went back to the first one and scrunched it into a flower. I found that by the time I got back to the first one, it had cooled enough not to be lethal but was still fine for gluing. Of course you don't have to do it that way, I just found I lost less skin that way.
I can see how everyone is addicted to using book pages to create home decor pieces. It's easy and the price is definitely right.
This is where I party.
