The Unfolding Book

This weekend I went to my cousin's house where we watched corny Tv shows and made crafts. I started this project there, but finished it at my apartment. She had a plethora of books for me to scour through and use and I picked this red and black book for my craft. We got this idea on Pinterest (originally from here) . =]



I took all of the pages out so it was just an empty shell of a book.  Then I folded each page into ovals and glued them to the spine of the book.






I made a lot of different sizes of folded sheets and glued them in different directions, trying to make it look like a vine of pages.




Then I tied a black ribbon through the spine to make a bow at the top.


Then I just hung it up on the wall with a single nail!



Let me know what you think!
