Book Pages and Bottle Caps

This is one of those things Mr. Chocolate asks: "What made you think of that?" to which I respond: "Dunno...just did".

If you can't tell, I kinda have a thing for paper flowers and got the idea that they'd make an easy wreath. I've made a book wreath using the scroll idea , but I thought I'd combine book pages and the flower idea. I didn't have any wreath forms but I had some mat board. I traced a circle using a plate and then cut out a smaller circle from the middle. I wanted it to have a finished look on the back so I wrapped the "form" with grosgrain ribbon:
LOVE Dollar Tree's Grosgrain Ribbon
Tied ribbon to the form to hang the wreath. I made 9 layered paper flowers ( great stress release...cut, crumple, cut, crumple) and then hot glued them around my wreath form. Now you could just stop there and have a perfectly lovely ( I think!) wreath. But I'm a "more is more" kinda gal so I remembered I'd picked up some stickers from the $1 bin at JoAnn's:
which are the perfect size to fit inside bottle caps. Because normal people go around thinking "What fits inside bottle caps?".  So I got out 9 bottle caps, put a sticker inside each, burnished with a dry embossing tool, and glued one bottle cap to the center of each flower:
