I'd like to share with you my newest paper wreath design:
I have been making book page wreaths for about a year and a half now. I'd heard about a book wreath in a catalog, couldn't find the catalog, and so with no photo or no more detail than "rolled book page wreath" I decided to design my own. I really enjoy making these and I like the fact that I'm keeping loads of antique and vintage books from being thrown away and forgotten ~ well, maybe not loads of books, but it looks like it if you see the stacks I have in my workroom! Most of the books I use are books that are in such a state that no one else would buy them. Pages are torn, missing, or scribbled on; covers are gone... but I can't bear to pass them up, and as with nearly everything I collect, the older and more tattered, the better. Come by my etsy shop if you'd like to see what's left. Most have sold, but as soon as I get caught up with orders and deadlines, I will list more wreaths.
