Curling Book Pages Instead of Turning Them

Book Wreath, by Myquillyn Smith, The Nester

 by Cathy Baker

Okay, so Monday mornings may not be the most ideal time to share a creative idea but I know we can do it! Especially if there’s an extra shot of espresso involved. 

You know I’m a huge fan of Myquillyn Smith’s blog, The Nester. Her mantra immediately won me over: 

It doesn’t have to be perfect to be beautiful. 

Okay, back to crafting. Can you believe this wreath consists of cone-shaped book pages?  Visit Myquillyn’s post from 2011 to see the tutorial. I’m blown away that she created this 36″ marvel in less than an hour. I may host a DIY wreath time at my house next year, but in the meantime, let’s find a book, remove the pages, and start curling those babies.

The laurel wreath on the right was created from plastic spoons.

If you have your own wreath ideas to share, you’ll enjoy linking up on Myquillyn’s blog, The Nester, December 2nd. Hundreds of creative beings will share their beautiful {imperfect} masterpieces. Read more about it here. 

I’d love to see yours there. Me? I’ll simply be scouting for ideas. You’re welcome to join me. 

So, how does your {imperfect but beautiful} creativity find its own way to flow?
