Book Page Bouquets

A few weeks ago, I decided to make a book-page wreath.  You may have seen them in blogland...they have been all the rage for a few years.

I found an old yellowing book on furniture refinishing that I will never use again, so I tore out the pages and taped them into cones, like this:

I stuck the cones in these two large vases until I had time to make the wreath:
That was about a month ago.  So far I have not been inspired to make the wreath, so I just put the vases full of paper "flowers" back up on the entertainment center in my family room. 

I decided that I kind of like the vases full of paper "flowers"!
Someday I may still make a wreath, but for now I am content with these winter bouquets.

  5. Thanks, Cher. One of these days I will (may) make the wreath...then again, they could stay up there for months! At least they fill the vase. I always thought the empty vases looked odd.

  9. Great idea, Zoey, I have a bunch of empty vases sitting around here, too. They'd look better with something in them. I'm also looking forward to how you make a wreath from the pages, too. Hope you have a great weekend. (Another five inches of snow tonight....but it will end sometime soon.)
