How to Make an Origami Old Book Page Wreath

Start by tearing or cutting out book pages. You will need several depending upon the size of your embroidery hoop. I recommend starting with 20 pages and adding more later if needed.

Use a ruler and divide each page into equal sections vertically. Mark them with a pen or pencil for easy cutting.

Using a craft knife or scissors, cut all of your pages into strips. I cut multiple pages at a time to make this a faster process.

Now, glue the strips together end to end creating a "ribbon" of paper.

Now, you will begin folding the paper as shown, going back and forth in an accordion style that folds back upon itself so you are creating a 3D pattern. If unsure how to do this, watch the video for a better step by step process.

Once you have folded an entire length of the paper ribbon, you will glue the end in place to hold the pattern.

You will create 10-15 of these lengths of paper ribbon to start. If your wreath isn't full enough, you can always make more.

Now, you will glue one end to the embroidery hoop, and then weave it back and forth around the hoop, gluing the end in place before starting with another length of paper ribbon.

Fill in the wreath multiple times wrapping the paper around in a spiral pattern as shown until you are happy with the results.

Now, you will cut a length of ribbon and create a large bow then tie it in the center with twine.

Add a bit of lace ribbon or even a flower in the center if desired and glue in place.

Now you can display your wreath!
