After finishing the vintage paper wall in the guest bedroom, I noodled the idea of making a rolled paper wreath. You know the kind I mean. Sheets of paper are rolled into cones and then the cones are arranged beautifully into lovely, full wreaths. I tried it. I failed. I don't want to share. Apparently I have trouble with cones.
Instead, I made much simpler paper flowers. With vintage paper. Because I happen to have a lot of it. I mean, did you see how much was on that wall?
I cut a bunch of pages out of an old poetry book. Gasp! I know, but the poetry never spoke to me. It was time to put that paper to good use! Most old paper is really fragile and these book pages were no exception. I had to be very careful to not slice the sheets in half when I was scoring them to fold.
I used a glue stick to attach lengths of paper together, but the good ol' hot glue gun holds the rosettes in place better than anything else. Here they are ready to be hot glued into flowers. Yay!
I linked up to the Monday Funday Link Party at Uncommon designs and the Craft-O-Maniac Monday Link Party for the first time!
