PAPER WREATHS

I have been wanting to make a paper wreath for awhile now and I found an amazing tutorial on Living with Lindsay's blog....(thanks so much Lindsay--it is a great tutorial!).
I made my paper wreath from a vintage (1930s) french textbook that I found at the thrift store.  
Because I am making these wreaths up for Christmas I randomly added glitter to some of the page edges.  There is an amazing double sided tape you can buy at craft stores...you simply apply one side to your edge and dip the other side in glitter...this gives an uniform and even look to your glittered pages.




I am so excited to be participating in a Vintage Christmas barn sale this year along with some very talented women.....Angela from La, La's Land, Heather from A Day in the Country, Noelle from Hopscotch-Goods for your Home, Jill from Castaways and Lily from Fleur de Lily.  
I will keep you posted!
Happy day!
