Nice work!!! I made one of these--well 2 actually--recently and gave both away.  I, too, was amazed at the finished size! I thought about skipping the paint-edges-before-tearing-out-pages step, but am really glad that I decided not to do so, because it really does look so much better with just a tiny bit of color.  I wonder if using an old novel with already colored edges would look okay?  Incidentally, I used the ink from some defective printer ink cartridges that a friend gave me.  each color was in its own little cartridge. Even though it wasn't economical as far as how well it covered, it was FREE and the color was vivid and dried really fast!!! I will probably return the cartridges to someplace that recycles them for cash as well! (Home run!)

I haven't used my glue gun in ages---sympathies on the fingers--mine were the same way!

I thought that I had seen this on Craftster before, too.... At the time I bought the wreath forms but never got the wreath made...

NOW, with this encouragement, I'm once more on it!
