"They Had Blood Banks in the Analogue Realm?" ( Book Page Wreath Tutorial)

Evidently so. The titillating excerpt from above is why I had no problem turning my dollar store copy of "The Ninth Talisman" into this: 

Armed with a hot glue gun, wreath form (the flat kind) and a copy of the "The Ninth Talisman, I single-handedly battled hot glue gun burns, interruptions, a husband who thought his wife had gone off the deep end (for reals this time) to take someone else's work of art (and I use the term loosely) and make it my own. Who knew crumpled up bits of paper could look soooo good?

There she is again, just for fun. Oh, you might be wondering about the "L-O-V-E", well, I put some white cardstock in tea to age it, then cut it out with a ruffle-edged scissor, and then hot glued it to some thread. I'm totes going to change it out for St. Patty's Day.

Happy Friday!!
