"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:
