Valentines Book Wreath

I made this wreath the other day during Easton's nap,  that's how quick you can make one too....
 I'm sure that you don't need a tut on it, but just in case you do...here ya go...........

1. Cut out a circle out of cardboard, I used a cereal box

 2. get your book an rip out a bunch of pages and cut them down to 5x5, make a cone and staple the bottom together
 3. start gluing them to the cardboard circle, I used a glue gun
 4. keep gluing
5. keep gluing
 here is what it will look like when you have glued them all on
and of course you need something in the middle to make it look valentinezy, I cut out a scallop 4" circle with my cricut and some hearts then made a little garland with the hearts.

 I used two sided tape to attach the scallop circle, so that way I can change it out for different Holidays!
Thanks for looking!!
