I made a paper wreath!

When I first saw this paper wreath tutorial at The Lovely Residence, I was smitten completely and determined to make my own. Her instructions at the site were perfect. Here’s my pictorial essay on how mine went.

First I had to choose square scrapbook paper and glue two pieces together. (If you have reverse-able paper, you won’t have to do this. You need 6 pages–12 glued together).

Fold into triangles. Measure at 2 1/2, 5, and 7 inches from both sides. Cut almost to make a triangle, but not all the way.)

Unfold, then pull the first triangle together and tape.

Now turn it over and connect the strips in the opposite way, securing with tape.

After you’re done, each one will look like this.

Staple together, then staple each side (in the back) to each other.

It’s done! And it looks marvy above my bed.

Seriously, if I can do this, so can you. Took me less than an hour.
