paper wreath ala susi

seems as though everyone has been making these paper wreaths.so i figure, why not... i got a lot of books that i bought when i first started buying old books.  not good for much but great for a wreath!  a lot of the wreaths i saw had used a straw wreath for a base.  i didn't have one of them but i have a lot of cardboard, so i used two plates (outer circle/inner circle) cut them out, started rolling my paper (used a glue dot on each one to hold the roll), then stapled each one to the ring.  being this was my first, it's a little uneven on thickness.  if i were to make another, i would definately space them out but put more layers.  for the inside of the circle, i stapled on the back, and used another glue dot to attach it to the one it's in front of.  i cut another small rectangle and stapled to the back top, folded a piece over and used my crop-a-dile to put a hanging hole.  put that on the screw on the door and voila! a paper wreath.  easy peasy.
