Folded Book Page Wreath

I was on a book page makin' wreath kick!  After making the first wreath similar to Miss Mustard Seed's, I came across this picture in Pottery Barn.

I could use the same books from Grandma's house, but instead of rolling them I could slightly fold them with a dab of hot glue to keep them together.  So again I folded lots of paper and again I made a donut shape out of cardboard for the backing.  This one was a little tricker than the first.  I needed support on the glued pages to keep them from falling over.  I used a cup to keep them "standing".  Once I had all of the folded paper glued it still seemed a little flimsy.  I decided to glue some pages in the opposite direction for futher support.  I did this ramdomly.  You can see this in my side picture.

I like how this wreath is all kind of whilly-wonky (yeah I know that isn't a word)!  Some pages are placed evenly while others have the look of just randomly put in with a kind of up-turn fashion.  I added a brown wired ribbon behind the wreath and a glittered "G" is hung from one of the pages.

Thanks for stopping by!
