Antique Paper Wreath - Tutorial

How about making an Antique Paper Wreath from yellowbook?
The idea came from Jenna DeAngeles
Supplies:
antique book or any other book
tape
stapler
hot glue & glue
chipboard 12 by 12 inches
decor for center (ornaments, flowers, etc.)
ribbon or cord for hanging wreath

Step 1. Tare the papers and trum the edges so it would look nice...


Step 2. Start rolling cones. Secure the courner with scotch tape


Step 3. Staple about 1 inch of the cone point



 and now the fun part....
Repeat Step 1- 3 about 154 times... I am not joking...



Step 4. If you would like you can paint those 154 cones...


Step 5. Take 12 by 12 inches chip board, find the middle and drew the circles 4” and 8” diameter…


Step 6. Start gluing cones of your 1st layer by placing those at 12, 3, 6, and 9 o'clock...

proceed with the rest of cones...




now you have you 1st layer finished...
Step 7. Repeat Step 6 for second layer...


Step 8. Finish 3rd layer...

Step 9. Decorate center with flowers or ornaments...








And here is a little surprise for you... I created a picture frame matching my Antique Paper Wreath...
