Beautiful Large Sheet Music Flower

About a month ago I was browsing a linky party when I came across this absolutely beautiful flower by Whimsical Perspective.  I loved it so much that I literally started making one right away.  This isn't totally like me.  I usually sit on an idea for a while before I get around to doing it.  I guess I really must have liked this idea.  I'm not going to give you a tuturiol on the process because Laura did a great job and you can check out hers here.

Here is my version:
And here is Laura's:


I had such fun making mine that I had my sister-in-law help me make two more to put up at church for spring/easter decor.  We used multi-coloured scrapbook paper because they were going on a plain white wall and we wanted them to be nice and bright. If you're going to make one using scrapbook paper, it's way easier to use the thin paper as opposed to thicker cardstock-like paper because it's more flexible.

  2. I'm a librarian in a middle school and this would be so neat to do with discarded book pages! The paper is thin, like you mentioned would work well, but all I need are the directions. Can you tell me how this is put together?? Thanks!
