Are smitten with creating book page crafts, or is it just me?
I was going through some old photos and discovered my first effort in book page crafting.
A Book Page Medallion Wreath
When I decided to make this wreath I watched videos and read all kinds of how-to’s. It seemed pretty complicated to me. And really, it was a piece of cake. Kind of. Don’t laugh, but rolling the pages into mini horns was not as easy as it looked. I think I needed a third hand. You know how it is….some things come very easily for a few and the rest of us we have to work it.
The wreath looks good if you don’t look closely. My favorite part is the medallion. I had never made a rosette before and it came out nicely. It makes the wreath, don’t you think?
I don’t have the wreath any longer. My friend was gifted with it when I moved to PA. And even though it wasn’t perfect, and a wee bit more tedious than I had planned, I was bitten with the book page bug. From making flowering branches to Christmas trees, it’s been fun crafting with book pages.
Have you had fun with book pages? What was your favorite project?
Maybe I should thank this book page medallion wreath for inspiring me down this road of book page crafting for home decor. [wink]
