Paper Book Wreath

Hello ;)
Here is another Christmas creation which I made using an old paper book and I loved the outcome and got so many compliments on this wreath.
 I can't take credit for the idea as I found it on you tube along with lot's of other fab wreath tutorials. This particular wreath idea was found here
It was so therapeutic making the cone shapes even though at first I thought it would take me forever but you soon get the knack of it and before you know it you have a mountain of them ;)
Here it is on my cabinet in my front room but I ended up putting in my porch.
The baubles were a bargain from the pound shop and I think I got something like 30  for £1! 
I would definitely consider making one for this Christmas.......did I just say this Christmas??? It will be here before we know it and this year as I always say i'm going to make all my Christmassy things well in advance...hmmmm we'll see lol

Lana, this is gorgeous in its simplicity! Wouldn't it look great with the black and white from a music book? How did you adhere the papers? Regular tape? Is the base cardboard or foam board? I'd love knowing how you put it together. It's gorgeous!

I love this idea that Jenna came up with and love that you found it and shared it with us. Thank you! I think I will make these for Christmas gifts this year. A couple of things that I will add/change is instead of adding Christmas balls to the center, I plan on adding handmade paper flowers. That way the wreath is not only a Christmas wreath but can be used year round. Also, I plan on experimenting with the Tattered Angels spray on the book pages. That will give it some sparkle and color. I may also try to use actual scrapbook paper or cardstock. I'm very excited to try this project!
