book page wreath, 2.0

Insomnia is a funny thing at this stage of pregnancy….on the one hand, it’s good practice going without sleep for when Baby Girl gets here, but on the other hand, I just want to stick a fork in my eye to have something else to focus on besides the fact that it’s been a while since I’ve caught more than two hours of z’s at a time.  The good news is that I’ve basically cleared out my DVR and have banged out quite a few book page wreaths for friends and family at all hours of the night. You might remember the wreath I gave away on the blog this time last year, the tutorial of which can be found here…well, one night last week, I got a wild hair and decided to change it up a bit by rolling the pages instead of folding them.  Here is what I ended up with:

Instead of folding in an “S” pattern (left), I rolled each page (right) and then stapled the bottom:

I’m not going to lie, these are incredibly time consuming, but they always work well for when I’m in a pinch for a birthday, Christmas or even a hostess gift and everyone LOVES them, so it’s well worth the effort! 

Which way do you like better?

    Cute! I love that you can change out that red ribbon and use it year round. Very festive.

    Sorry you aren't sleeping well. Nothing is worse than insomnia. At least you're staying productive (I count DVR clearing as productive)!

    Kate – I absolutely count DVR as being productive, as well πŸ˜‰ Hope you're enjoying the holiday season!

    Awww. I know this last trimester WELL. (Midwives assistant, IBCLC, Childbirth educator and Doula) It IS natures way of prepping your body for a baby who will be up in 1-2 hour increments at night. Sleep (nap/cat nap) during the day…your body and brain will thank you! Your wreathes are beautiful! Enjoy this time…It will be forever different.
