I was inspired by According to Kelly and her $2 Book Wreath. I knew that it had to be my next craft. Plus I am trying very hard to use what I have on hand (and more than not, failing). So I took an old book I had on hand, just your standard paperback. I cut a circle out of a cereal box and got started!
Here is what the finished product looks like!
an old paperback book
hot glue gun
scissors (regular and scalloped)
Cardboard or a paper plate
First step was to start making cones out of the paper, which I then stapled.
At this point you will want to fill in any bare spots that you have.
Lark and Lola, place a thin bead of glue in the creases and add glitter.
I did use scrapbook paper for the center of my flower and stamped it with an "M", and then added 2 scrapbook paper leaves. Which turned out like this:
Have fun crafting!
