Book Page Rosette Pomander
I am having so much fun with my old dictionary! This pomander/kissing ball/Christmas ornament is my latest creation using book pages, and I love it!
Using trial and error (lots of errors), I taught myself how to make these rolled paper flowers.
Then slowly, slowly, one by one, I hot glued them to a Styrofoam ball. A ribbon at the top, and we’re done!
I’m thrilled with how it turned out and am now working on a wreath. It’s slow going, but totally worth it. I can’t wait to show you!
What are you making right now?

that is the cutest thing ever!! I have a link to a tutorial for one like that that I have been wanting to make.
Wow! Such a creative idea for a wreath! It looks so beautiful! We recently made some ornaments for Christmas out of old pop cans. It’s a fun Christmas craft for your little elves. http://www.between3sisters.com/2010/11/quick-easy-christmas-ornaments-guest.html
BTW, I would love to become a follower of you blog but I don’t see the option. Where would I find it?
Thanks for your comments! I just looked at your pop can Santas. Very creative! I’ve never installed any “follower” software on my blog, but you can subscribe to the RSS feed in the top right hand corner of the page. You’re welcome to read along if you’d like. Thanks so much for visiting!
I’ve seen a lot of projects using book pages, but this is the first one that I am tempted to actually try. It is so pretty! Thanks so much for sharing!
I think it’s gorgeous!!! 🙂
a – dor – able! I love all things made from old books!
This is SO beautiful! I’ve been thinking about making a book page wreath, but I adore the rolled flower technique you’ve used. Can’t wait to see how your wreath turns out!
How do I make these? I’m getting married next June and have been trying to find out how to do it for my bouquet!
Can you tell me how you made your rolled paper flower?
