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.
Thanks for dropping by!


  1. All of your wreaths are gorgeous, but this one is just stunning! Love it.

  2. Your wreaths are always lovely, but this arch wreath is my favorite! Would look lovely over a window or door. Hmmm, may have to take a peek where it might work in my house :)
