"B" is for Believe

Paper starburst believe garland banner:


Made from old paperback book pages.


Naturally aged to perfection.


With a glittered letter in the center that spells out believe.



Here's how I made the garland:

1. Prepare the paper rolls.
Tear out old paperback book pages and roll into a cone shape securing with hot glue:


2. Using chipboard coasters (or any 4" cardboard circle) begin adding paper rolls:


3. Then fill in gaps until complete:


4. For the glittered letters use a 1 1/2" circle cut out of cardstock and stick on adhesive letters:


5. Paint white glue onto the surface of each letter then sprinkle with glitter:
** Wait to add letter to starburst until they are strung on garland.


6.  To make the garland hot glue string onto back of each coaster:
** Place string in top third of coaster.


7. Cover the string with scrap fabric to secure.


8. Once all starbursts are attach then add the glittered letters:


Hang and enjoy:




A variation on these previous paper roll projects:







And now the garland:
