Book page rose heart wreath

Pin It

There is still time to add a little Valentine bobble to your home. Why not make a few book page roses and create a simple heart shaped wreath?

*****

  • First fold a sheet of paper in half length wise. I used a page from a catalog.

*****

  • Remember the folded hearts we used to make as kids? Just make one those by cutting out a cone shape making sure you don’t cut the folded side. I used the full length and width of the paper, but you can make it any shape you want. You can even fold the paper in half from top to bottom. I think the kids call it “hamburger”.

*****

  • Now cut another cone shape inside the large one. I think I cut mine about 1 1/2″ wide, but I recommend cutting it even smaller, as mine is too wide and show around the edges. I will have to trim it up some.

*****

  • Trace the paper heart onto cardboard and cut it out, using an Exacto Knife. I couldn’t find mine, so I used a kitchen knife, which is why my heart is not very neat!

*****

  • Apply the roses with a glue gun starting at the top middle of the heart, filling the whole thing in. Make sure you nestle the roses close together so that the cardboard doesn’t show through.

 

*****

This is what you will have when you are finished. Simple, fun, and cute! Below I have included some more shots of it…

    • Hi Linda, Too funny! I did do the finish myself, but have not posted about it. I actually did it about twenty years ago. I will try to write about it in the next couple of weesk. It will take me a bit of time to remember the steps I did! Ha! I hope I can remember that far back! Anyway, thanks for stopping by!

      • I love it too! Good catch. I am so excited to try these book page roses. I am so glad you shared them! Thanks!

  1. Okay, I was looking for this tutorial as I saw the wreath on Funky Junk Interiors and fell in love with it! Before I start painting, I’m making this wreath, it’s beautiful! As is your blog :)
