When I first started my 'pinning' one of the crafts that took my breath away was this:

It was for sale on Etsy and of course I didn't want to pay for it, so I pinned it and not only did I pin it on my Crafts to Do board, but it was my board cover because I liked it immensely.  So....I have finally made it!  Yes, it's not quite as cute, but we have been looking for something to hang above our bed and well, why not these.  

I first went to Goodwill and found a book at half-off, but it had to be a special book with larger than usual font.  
I then cut out many petals and spirals......

For the spirals, I decided to use the picture pages leaving the picture on the backside while rolling them up. I still had the words for the flower centers, but it added a small amount of color to the centers.

 Nicely placed over our bed.  They  look cuter in real life.
